NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       usync  -  synchronize two setld inventory files to reflect
       current system status

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

       /usr/lbin/usync [-d] file1 file2

OPTIONS    [Toc]    [Back]

       Enables debugging.  This will print the pairs of pathnames
       being synchronized on the standard output.

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       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.

RESTRICTIONS    [Toc]    [Back]

       The two inventory files must be sorted in ascending  ASCII
       sequence on the pathname field.

ERRORS    [Toc]    [Back]

       usync: file is corrupt


              Records  in  one  of  the  inventory  files are not
              sorted properly.

EXAMPLES    [Toc]    [Back]

       The following command produces  a  synchronized  inventory
       for  two  versions  of  the OATDCB subset: /usr/lbin/usync
       OATDCB100.inv OATDCB120.inv

FILES    [Toc]    [Back]

       Subset inventory files
