System Restore Command-Line Options
Use System Restore command-line options to automatically execute instructions or commands. A system administrator can use the System Restore command-line options to import the CSM database for the first time or reload the CSM database from an archive file (.czar file).
To use the System Restore command-line options, execute CSM Administrator with arguments. The System Restore application to run is called SystemRestore.exe, which is found in the Cherwell Service Management installation directory.
|/?||Provides help text for the supported command-line options.|
|/s or /i||This option specifies to run from the installer.|
|/w||This option specifies to run for web applications.|
|/a||This option specifies to run automatically.|
|/pc||This specifies a privileged connection.|
|/z||This is the .czar file location.|
This is the connection to use. To use a connection that is available to all users of the machine, add the prefix [Common]. To use a connection that is associated with the current user, add the prefix [User]. When using the interactive dialog, [Common] connections are on the All Users tab, while [User] connections are on the tab named for the current user.
This is the user ID to use. This only works when CSM authentication is enabled and is not supported with other authentication types (Windows or LDAP).
This is the password to use. This only works when CSM authentication is enabled and is not supported with other authentication types (Windows or LDAP).
Putting a password into a shortcut is a potential security issue, since other users can edit the properties of the shortcut and read the password.
|/pe||This is the encrypted password to use.|
|/ps||This is the platform definition file location.|
|/unicode||This option enables Unicode support.|
Example of a System Restore command-line flag:
/c "[Common]Cherwell Browser" /u henri /p mypassword /z "C:\Cherwell/CherwellDemo.czar" /a
