SCROLLKEEPER-UPDATE(8)      System Manager's Manual     SCROLLKEEPER-UPDATE(8)

       scrollkeeper-update  - identify new, modified, or removed OMF files and
       update the scrollkeeper databases

       scrollkeeper-update [ -v ] [ -q ] [ -n ] [ -p database-directory ] [ -o
       omf-directories ]

       This synchronizes the scrollkeeper database with the OMF directory.  It
       searches the scrollkeeper OMF directory to identify if any  files  were
       added,  removed, or modified and updates its internal database files to
       reflect any changes.

       This utility is generally executed as the last  step  of  installation,
       after the OMF file is copied into place.  It is also typically the last
       step of uninstallation, after the OMF file is removed.  Using this,  an
       administrator  can easily manually install and uninstall documents into
       the database.  It can also be run to guarantee the  database  is  fully

       Note  that because scrollkeeper-update is normally run during installa-
       tion and its output is typically seen by users,  non-critical  warnings
       and  errors such as those caused by invalid metadata are written to the
       log file instead of to the terminal. Developers should use the log file
       to identify any problems.

       -v     Be  verbose:  Say  which  scrollkeeper-install and scrollkeeper-
              uninstall commands are being run to bring  the  database  up  to

       -q     Run  in quiet mode, suppressing output of all but the most seri-
              ous warning and error messages to STDOUT.  Note that most output
              to the log file will be unchanged.

       -n     Use  the  network to retrieve the DTD if it is not available via
              the system's XML catalog.

       -p database-directory
              Use database-directory as the  directory  for  the  scrollkeeper
              database  rather  than the usual one obtained by running scroll-
              keeper-config --pkglocalstatedir.

       -o omf-directories
              Examine the directories named in omf-directories rather than the
              one  usual  one obtained by running scrollkeeper-config --omfdir
              (or specified in the OMF_DIR environment variable if set).   The
              omf-directories should be a colon-separated list of directories.

              If no -o option is specified, this variable overrides the scrol-
              lkeeper-config-provided OMF directory.  It should  be  a  colon-
              separated list of directories.
