usync - synchronize two setld inventory files to reflect current system
/usr/lbin/usync [-d] file1 file2
-d Enables debugging. This will print the pairs of pathnames being syn-
chronized on the standard output.
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
The two inventory files must be sorted in ascending ASCII sequence on the
+ usync: file is corrupt
Records in one of the inventory files are not sorted properly.
The following command produces a synchronized inventory for two versions of
the OATDCB subset:
/usr/lbin/usync OATDCB100.inv OATDCB120.inv
Subset inventory files
