NAME

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

SYNOPSIS

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

OPTIONS

  -d  Enables debugging.  This will print the pairs of pathnames being syn-
      chronized	on the standard	output.

DESCRIPTION

  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

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

ERRORS

    +  usync: file is corrupt

       Explanation:

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

EXAMPLES

  The following	command	produces a synchronized	inventory for two versions of
  the OATDCB subset:

       /usr/lbin/usync OATDCB100.inv OATDCB120.inv
