Figure 1: Rapid Recovery Command Line Management provides command line functions
Rapid Recovery Command Line Management is a Windows command line utility that lets users interact with the Rapid Recovery Core server. It offers some of the same functions that the Rapid Recovery Core Console graphic user interface provides. For example, Rapid Recovery Command Line Management utility can mount recovery points or force a snapshot.
The Rapid Recovery Command Line Management utility is embedded in every installation of the Rapid Recovery Core. To open the Command Line Management utility for a default installation, open the Command Prompt (right-click and select the Run as Administrator option), and then change the directory to the path C:\Program Files\AppRecovery\Core\CoreService\, which is the location of the
cmdutil.exe file. From this directory, you can pass action flags to the Rapid Recovery Command Line Management utility through a selection of command options and qualifiers to perform limited management functions.
To run any cmdutil command in the module, at the command prompt, type the command cmdutil followed by a space; then type a slash (/) followed immediately by the command name (do not include a space). Identify each parameter or command option by preceding it with a hyphen or dash, followed by the command option. Include a space before any input to the command option. When using two or more command options, include a space after each option and input pair. Again precede the option name with a hyphen and a space before any input. After typing the command, press [Enter] to run the command.
Each command includes examples to model the syntax. In these examples, the command prompt is designated by the right angle bracket, >. Thus, command structure is as follows:
>cmdutil /[command name] -parameter1 p1_input -parameter2 p2_input
To open an existing DVM repository on the local machine, type the following command and press [Enter]:
>cmdutil /opendvmrepository -localpath E:\Repository
