LiteSpeed for SQL Server 8.6 - Configure Log Shipping Guide

About Using Command-Line Interface

About Using the Command-Line Interface

LiteSpeed allows you to perform various tasks directly from the command-line interface (CLI).


  • You must run commands on the server instance on which you want to perform activity.
  • Review the Syntax sections to see which arguments are mandatory, which are optional, and which are mutually exclusive. Mutually exclusive arguments are separated by a vertical bar. Optional arguments are enclosed in square brackets. Round brackets are used to group arguments.
  • Review the Arguments sections for more information about the arguments and accepted values.

To perform tasks using the CLI

  1. Change the directory until you are in the directory containing the LiteSpeed command-line utility (Usually, C:\Program Files\Quest Software\LiteSpeed\SQL Server\Engine).

  2. Run a LiteSpeed utility with appropriate arguments.
