DBM Options

Use

When you call the Database Manager CLI, you can enter various DBM options and exactly one DBM command.

You can enter parameters for many of the DBM options. If you do not specify a parameter, the default values are used.

If you enter DBM options with parameters, you must mark the beginning of the following DBM command with the DBM option –c. In this way you prevent the Database Manager from interpreting the subsequent DBM command as a parameter of the previously entered DBM option.
