To use the tdwcmd command line program, review the syntax notation.
The following table describes the syntax notation for the tdwcmd command line program:
Convention
Description
--x or -x
An option placed before an argument. The option designates the parameter that you enter. For example, to enter the user name for tdwcmd, type --UserName or -un followed by the user name.
<x>
Required option. If you omit a required option, the command line program returns an error message.
<x | y>
Select between required options. If you omit a required option, the command line program returns an error message.
If a pipe symbol (|) separates options, specify one option. If there are no pipe symbols to separate the options, specify all the options.
[x]
Optional option. The command runs whether or not you enter these options.
[x | y]
Select between optional options. For example, you can display help for all tdwcmd commands by using the --Help or -h option.
[--Help|-h]
The command runs whether or not you enter the optional parameter.
