NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       invsync - Synchronizes system inventory

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]


DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       The  invsync  utility  creates  a  Master  Synchronization
       Inventory (MSI) file and a Customized File Inventory (CFI)
       file.   These files can be used to preserve the customized
       or modified state of your system in the  event  of  a  new
       installation.   The  MSI  file contains a complete list of
       files installed by the setld  utility  and  the  state  of
       those  files  when they were installed.  The CFI file contains
 the names of those  files  installed  by  the  setld
       utility  that  have  been customized or modified since the
       installation.  The files listed in the CFI file are  overwritten
 if you perform a new installation of the operating

       You must have superuser  privileges  to  run  the  invsync

       The  invsync utility calls the usync utility to create the
       MSI file.  After the MSI  file  is  created,  the  invsync
       utility  calls the udetect utility to compare the state of
       the files shown in the MSI file with the current state  of
       the  files  installed on the system.  If a file state differs,
 an entry is written to the CFI file.

       Edit the CFI file to remove the entries for files that you
       do  not want to back up. The CFI file and the MSI file are
       written in the  setld  inventory  file  format.  For  more
       information, refer to the stl_inv(4) refernce page.
