updmv - Moves customized, user, and inventory data files to or from storage.
/usr/bin/updmv -i location /usr/bin/updmv -o location
Specifies the storage area of the files. This area can be a tape device, disk device, or a Remote Installation Services (RIS) server area.
The updmv utility is a part of the Reinstallation Toolkit (RITKIT). You must have superuser privileges to run this utility. During a new installation, there are some user files and customized files that can be overwritten. To ease the task of reproducing these files, the RITKIT utilities enable you to identify and save files from the current installation environment for later integration into the new installation environment. The updmv utility is used to move these files to a storage area or from the storage area to the update area.
The RITKIT utilities, genufi and invsync, create a User File Inventory (UFI) file and a Customized File Inventory (CFI) file, respectively. The UFI file identifies user files created after you installed the operating system. The CFI file identifies files that were customized after the installation. Using both of these files, the updmv utility obtains the list of files that must be stored.
To store the files listed in the CFI and UFI files, you must specify the updmv utility with the -o option followed by the location parameter. Note that the system must be shut down to single-user mode before you specify the updmv utility with the -o option.
To make these files accessible for integration into a new installation environment, you must then specify the updmv utility with the -i option followed by the location parameter. The updmv utility will then move the files to the /var/adm/install/update directory so that they can be merged into the new installation environment using the updmerge utility.
