Metadata Manager Command Line Programs

Effective in version 9.6.1 HotFix 2, Metadata Manager repository commands have behavior changes or changed command options. Additionally, some commands are moved from the mmcmd command line program to the mmRepoCmd command line program.
The following mmRepoCmd command has changed behavior:
restoreRepository
Restores Metadata Manager repository contents from a back-up file. You can restore repository contents to an empty repository. Previously, you had to create repository contents before you could run this command. The options for this command are not changed.
The following commands are moved from mmcmd to mmRepoCmd:
createRepository
Creates the Metadata Manager warehouse tables and imports models for metadata sources into the Metadata Manager repository. You must enable the Metadata Manager Service before you can run this command.
You can run this command from an mmRepoCmd instance that is installed with the Informatica services, Informatica client, or Informatica utilities. Previously, you could run this command from an mmRepoCmd instance that was installed with the Informatica services.
The options for this command are changed. You enter command options for the Metadata Manager user instead of for the domain user. Also, you no longer have to enter command options for the PowerCenter repository. The Metadata Manager Service process restores the PowerCenter repository content when you start the Metadata Manager service.
