usync - synchronize two setld inventory files to reflect
current system status
/usr/lbin/usync [-d] file1 file2
Enables debugging. This will print the pairs of pathnames
being synchronized on the standard output.
The usync command is used to achieve inventory synchronization
by merging two inventory files according to the
pathname field of the inventory records. The result is
directed to standard output.
If the two inventory files contain records with the same
pathname, the record in file2 is written and the record in
file1 is ignored. If either inventory file contains a
pathname not present in the other file, the record containing
that pathname is written to standard output. To
reflect the current system inventory, file2 should represent
a later installation than file1.
The two inventory files must be sorted in ascending ASCII
sequence on the pathname field.
