Using the NIM syncwpar operation
Use the syncwpar operation to synchronize the software of WPAR clients with the managing system. The client must have a valid mgmt_profile for the managing system, and the managing system must be running.
The command line syntax for the syncwpar operation is as follows:
nim -o syncwpar -a Attribute=Value ... TargetName|TargetNames
The target of an syncwpar operation can be a WPAR client, group of WPAR clients, stand-alone client, or group of stand-alone clients. If the target is a stand-alone client or group of stand-alone clients, the operation applies to the WPARs which are on the target, regardless of whether those WPARs are NIM clients.
There are no required attributes for the syncwpar operation. The following optional attributes can be specified for the syncwpar operation:
- -a cmd_flags=Value
- Specifies flags to pass through to the operation on the managing system to activate the system. See the syncwpar command for allowable flags.
- -a group=Value
- Specifies the name of a WPAR group to use for the operation.
- -a show_progress=Value
- Indicates whether status should be displayed as the operation
is performed. The default value is
