  invsync - Synchronizes system	inventory




  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 system.

  You must have	superuser privileges to	run the	invsync	utility.

  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.


  You must have	superuser privileges to	run the	invsync	utility.
