This parameter specifies the password for database authentication. If you use this parameter, you must also specify the -db_auth and dbuser <user_name> parameters.

This parameter specifies the user name for database authentication. If you use this parameter, you must also specify the -db_auth and dbpass <password> parameters.

-export

This parameter specifies that you want to export IT policies.

-file <file_name>

This parameter specifies the name of the backup file that the tool creates, or the name of the backup file that you want to use to import IT policy information to a BlackBerry Configuration Database. By default, the tool prompts you for this information.

-import

This parameter specifies that you want to import IT policies.

[-itpolicy <IT_policy_name>]

This parameter specifies the single IT policy that you want to export or import. Type the IT policy name in quotation marks ("") if the name contains a space or special characters.

[-list]

This parameter lists the IT policies that are available in a BlackBerry Configuration Database or in a .txt file that you specify.

If you use this parameter when you export an IT policy, the tool changes the name of the IT policy when it exports the IT policy from the BlackBerry Configuration Database to the backup file. The tool does not change the name of the IT policy in the source BlackBerry Configuration Database. If you use the parameter when you import an IT policy, the tool changes the name of the IT policy when it imports the IT policy from the backup file to the destination BlackBerry Configuration Database.

[-selectall]

This parameter exports or imports all available IT policies.

[-?] or [-h]

Each of these parameters provides more information about the tool. No other parameters are required when you use one of these parameters.
