updmv(8)							     updmv(8)



NAME

  updmv	- Moves	customized, user, and inventory	data files to or from
  storage.

SYNOPSIS

  /usr/bin/updmv -i  location

  /usr/bin/updmv -o  location

OPTIONS

  -i  Copies the Customized File Inventory (CFI) and User File Inventory
      (UFI) files and those files listed in these inventory files from the
      specified	location to the	/var/adm/install/update	directory.

  -o  Copies the CFI and UFI files and those files listed in the inventory
      files to the specified location.

OPERANDS

  location
      Specifies	the storage area of the	files. This area can be	a tape dev-
      ice, disk	device,	or a Remote Installation Services (RIS)	server area.

      You replace the location operand with the	name of	the tape or disk dev-
      ice, or the server name for a RIS	server area. For tape storage, you
      must use a no-rewind tape	device such as /dev/ntape/tape0_d0.  For disk
      storage, specify the complete directory path. For	storage	in a RIS
      server area, you must register the client	in the server's	RIS database.
      When you specify the server, the server name must	be followed by a
      colon (:).

DESCRIPTION

  The updmv utility moves files	listed in the User File	Inventory (UFI)	file
  and the Customized File Inventory (CFI) file to or from storage.

    +  The UFI file, created by	the genufi utility, identifies user files
       created after you installed the operating system.

    +  The CFI file, created by	the invsync utility, identifies	files that
       were customized after the installation.

  You must have	superuser privileges to	run the	updmv utility.

  During a new installation, some user files and customized files can be
  overwritten.	You can	identify and save files	from the current installation
  environment for later	integration into the new installation environment.
  Use the updmv	utility	to move	these files to a storage area or from the
  storage area to the update area.

  To store the files listed in the CFI and UFI files, invoke the updmv util-
  ity with the -o option followed by the location operand. The system must be
  shut down to single-user mode	before you specify the updmv utility with the
  -o option.


  To make these	files accessible for integration into a	new installation
  environment, invoke the updmv	utility	with the -i option followed by the
  location operand. The	updmv utility moves the	listed files to	the
  /var/adm/install/update directory so that they can be	merged into the	new
  installation environment with	the updmerge utility.

EXAMPLES

  Save the files to a tape device:

       # updmv -o /dev/ntape/tape0_d0

  You must use a no-rewind tape	device.

  Store	the files on a disk device:

       # updmv -o /mnt/mydata

  Store	the files in a RIS server area:

       # updmv -o midvale:

  To restore these files, replace the -o option	with the -i option.

  Restore the files that were stored in	a RIS server area:

       # updmv -i midvale:

  The restored image resides in	/var/adm/install/update.

RESTRICTIONS

  You must have	superuser privileges to	run the	updmv utility.

  The system must be in	single-user mode before	you invoke the updmv utility
  with the -o option.
