mmsclient - send script commands to Media Management server SYNOPSIS
/usr/bin/mmsclient [-f filename] [-A application-name] [-c clientname] [-i instancename] [-n network_config_file] [-P password] [-p portnumber] [-s hostname:port] [-t tag] /usr/bin/mmsclient -h DESCRIPTION
The mmsclient command creates a session with a Media Management (MM) server, enabling you to send Media Management Protocol (MMP) commands to the server and receive responses from that server. When used with the -f option (see below), mmsclient runs a script file that performs MMP operations. See mmsclient_script(4) for a description of the script file. The MMP and the commands in the script file are based, in part, on IEEE 1244, the Media Management System (MMS) standards. To run mmsclient, you must become superuser, or assume the Primary Administrator role. OPTIONS
The following options are supported: -A application-name Specifies the MMS application name to use for the current session. The default application name is MMS. -c client-name Specifies the MMS client from which commands are sent to the MMS server. The default is localhost. Note that this is not the host name for the MMS, which you specify with the -s option (see below). -f filename Specifies the name of the file containing the MMP commands. See mmsclient_script(4) for a description of the script file. -h Display usage information. -i instance-name Specifies the MMS application instance to use for this session. If administrative tasks such as creating or deleting objects are planned for the session, specify the instance as Admin. -n network_config_file Defines the configuration for the application client that runs the script, including the default values. To run the script of MMP com- mands, the application client can be configured explicitly, can use the default values, or can be modified using the values in this XML file. See EXAMPLES. -P password-file Specifies the full path to a file containing the password for the application specified with the -A option. If the command does not contain the -P option, you are prompted for the password. There is no default. -p portnumber Specify port number of MMS server. -s hostname[:port] Specifies the MMS server and, optionally, the port number, to which you send MMP commands. If you do not specify port, the port number defaults to 7151. -t tag Specify a tag for identifying an MMS session. You can match against tag to query information related to a session. The default tag is mmsclient-pid=pid, where pid is the PID of the MMS client. EXAMPLES
Example 1 Example of a Network Configuration File The following example configuration file, net_cfg.xml, specifies the conditions under which the MMP commands are performed: <!-- Client Configuration --> <mms_cfg> <!-- Network Configuration --> <mms_network_cfg host = "localhost" port = "7151" name = "MMS" instance = "admin" language = "MMP" version = "1.0" password = "summer05" <!-- mm_password = "MMS Media Manager" --> ssl_enabled = "false" ssl_cert_file = "/var/mms/ssl/pub/mms.pem" ssl_pass_file = "/var/mms/ssl/pub/mms_pass" <!-- ssl_crl_file = "/var/mms/ssl/pub/mms_crl.pem" --> /> </mms_cfg> Example 2 Running a Script with Default Connections The following command runs a script named test_beginend with the default connections: # mmsclient -f test_beginend Example 3 Specifying a Client by Host Name and Port Number The following command runs a script named test_beginend that connects to an MMS server on a host named x4200 and port number 1492 as the HSM admin: # mmsclient -f test_beginend -A HSM -i admin -t HSM_test_session -s x4200:1492 Example 4 Using a Network Configuration File and Specifying an Interactive Session The following command connects to the MMS server defined in the net_cfg.xml file and runs an interactive session: # mmsclient -n net_cfg.xml EXIT STATUS
