The smo repository create command

Contributors akseldavis


This command creates a repository in which to store database profiles and associated credentials. This command also checks to see that the block size is adequate.

        smo repository create
-port repo_port
-dbname repo_service_name
-host repo_host
-login -username repo_username
[-force] [-noprompt]
\[-quiet \| -verbose\]


  • -repository

    The options that follow -repository specify the details of the database for the repository

  • -port repo_port

    Specifies the TCP port number used to access the database that stores the repository.

  • -dbname repo_service_name

    Specifies the name of the database that stores the repository. Use either the global name or the SID.

  • -host repo_host

    Specifies the name or IP address of the host computer the repository database runs on.

  • -login

    Starts the repository login details.

  • -username repo_username

    Specifies the user name needed to access the database that stores the repository.

  • -force

    Attempts to force the creation of the repository. Using this option results in SnapManager prompting you to backup the repository before creating the repository.

  • -noprompt

    Does not display the prompt to backup the repository before creating it if you use the -force option. Using the -noprompt option ensures the prompt does not appear, making it easier to create repositories using a script.

  • -quiet

    Displays only error messages on the console. The default is to display error and warning messages.

  • -verbose

    Displays error, warning, and informational messages on the console.
