Function documentationDBM Options Locate this document in the navigation structure


When you call 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, mark the beginning of the subsequent DBM command with the DBM option -c. In this way you prevent Database Manager from interpreting the subsequent DBM command as a parameter of the previously entered DBM option.


You can use the following DBM options:




Indicating as DBM command


Name of the database instance


Activating Encryption

-i | -ic | -is | -ics

Name of the input script


Name of the database computer


Name of the Output File


Installation directory of the database instance


Name of the Log File


Opening an SQL Session

Opening a Utility Session


Deleting XUSER Entries


User key


Creating or Changing XUSER Entries


Logging on to the XUSER program


Displaying XUSER Data


Call Database Manager CLI, log on as the operator OLEG with the password MONDAY, connect to the DEMODB database, and display the content of the users database system table without explicitly specifying a database user.

(Mark the beginning of the DBM command with the option -c. The system default, that is the data of the database system administrator, is used for the database user):

>dbmcli -u OLEG,MONDAY -d DEMODB -uSQL -c db_execute SELECT * FROM users
