fix

The command line interfacedoes not provide the ability to specify what information is imported; however, there is a workaround to this:

  • Using multiple databases, you can open each database and specify the information you want to import into the database. 
  • Then, you can use the /LINKDB: parameter to import into the database.

Notes on Importing Data from the Command Line

To import data from the command line, you must be associated with the Reporting Administration role.  Reporting provides the OAREPT command for importing data into the reporting database. This command uses the import settings most recently specified on the Directory and Resource Reporting Import window.  The OAREPT command can be run from the following directory: Program Files\NetIQ\DRA\Reporting.

Note:  Before executing this command, configure import options through the Reporting interface. 

Syntax Options:

OAREPT /IMPORTBATCH [/LINKDB:dbname] [/SERVER:AdminServer]

Options:

/IMPORTBATCH

    • Specifies the batch file you want to use to import data.
/LINKDB:dbname
    • Specifies the database file into which Reporting imports data. If you do not specify the /LINKDB option, Reporting creates the OAREPT-AdminServer.mdb file and imports the data into the new file. If you specify the /LINKDB option, the tool imports data into the database file specified by the dbname variable.
    • You can specify either the full path or just the .mdb file name for the dbname variable. If you specify just the .mdb file name, Reporting looks for the specified file in the directory last specified on the Select Import Database window. To display this window, click Select Import Database on the File menu. By default, Reporting looks for the specified file in the following directory: Program Files\NetIQ\DRA\Reporting.
/SERVER:AdminServer
    • Specifies the Administration server from which you want to import data.
