     mofreg - register MOF classes with WBEM services

     /usr/sadm/bin/mofreg -r tag file

     /usr/sadm/bin/mofreg -s

     /usr/sadm/bin/mofreg -u tag [file]

     The mofreg command is used  by  package  and  patch  install
     scripts,  or  by  any  applications  that  wish  to register
     managed object format (MOF) classes with Sun  The  Web-Based
     Enterprise Management (WBEM) services.

     The WBEM services daemon (Common Information  Model  or  CIM
     object  manager)  processes  at  start up the files that are
     specified by mofreg commands. Files  are  processed  in  the
     order that the individual mofreg commands are executed.

     As an alternative to using the mofreg command, MOFs  can  be
     registered  or  unregistered  by manipulating directories in
     /var/sadm/wbem/logr. Instead of running the  mofreg  -r  tag
     file  version  fo  the  command  you can create a  directory
     named tag under /var/sadm/wbem/logr/preReg and copy file  to
     the tag directory.

     Similarly, instead of running the mofreg -u tag [file]  com-
     mand,   you   can   create   a  directory  named  tag  under
     /var/sadm/wbem/logr/preUnreg and copy the optional  file  to
     the tag directory.

     The entries are processed in increasing order of last modif-
     ication  time  of  the  tag directories. If you issue mofreg
     commands in rapid succession, the timestamps  might  be  the
     same.  If  you have a situation where the timestamp order is
     critical, you can place appropriate sleeps between the  suc-
     cessive  registration  or unregistration operations. As with
     the mofreg command, processing is done at next   restart  or
     by using the -s option.

     This alternative mechanism  is  typically  used  in  package
     install scripts which do not have access to /usr, and there-
     fore do not have access to the  mofreg  command.  This  case
     arises when packages are installed for diskless clients.

     The following options are supported:

      -r tag file    The file argument is the actual  MOF  regis-
                     tration  file.  Its form is identical to the
                     MOF syntax as  defined  by  the  Distributed
                     Management   Task  Force  (DMTF).  The  only
                     difference is the addition of the  following
                     3  new  pseudo-pragmas, which are variations
                     of the namespace pragma. The  name  of  file
                     cannot end in .unreg.

                     #pragma namespace("__create")
                     #pragma namespace("__delete")
                     #pragma namespace("__modify")

                     These three pragmas are used specify if  the
                     elements  following  the  pragmas  should be
                     created, deleted, or  modified  by  the  CIM
                     object  manager.  The  __delete  pragma  can
                     currently only be applied for  a  mofreg  -u

                     The tag argument is  a  unique  string  that
                     specifies   the  identity  of  the  registry
                     action. This tag can be set to  the  package
                     name  or  the  patch  number  if  the mofreg
                     script    is    being    invoked     through
                     packages/patches,  though  any  tag  can  be

                     Errors and  warnings  that  are  encountered
                     when  the  CIM  object  manager  handles the
                     mofreg script are logged. Processing of  the
                     mofreg  script  stops  at  the  first error.
                     Specific warnings include:

                     Element already defined - the element already exists and
                     cannot be created.

                     Element not found - the element does not exist and
                     cannot be modified.

                     The error conditions are:

                     Key modification - A class cannot be modified if its keys
                     are being changed.

                     Other mod compilation errors.

      -s             Forces the CIM object manager to immediately
                     process   outstanding   registry   requests,
                     instead  of  at  the  next   restart.   This
                     currently requires Java.

      -u tag [file]  Undoes the operations performed  during  mof

                      The tag argument  must  correspond  to  the
                     value set during the original mofreg invoca-
                     tion. If no mofreg was done with the  origi-
                     nal tag, the command does not succeed.

                     If required, an unreg file can be specified.
                     If  no  unreg  file  is  specified,  the CIM
                     object  manager  automatically  undoes   the
                     actions  of  the registry. Any class created
                     by the registry process is removed  and  any
                     classes  modified  by the registry revert to
                     the old state.

                     The mofreg command does  not  take  care  of
                     cases  where  packages and patches make con-
                     flicting changes to classes. This should  be
                     taken  care  of  by  the  standard patch and
                     package conflict resolution.

     The following exit values are returned:
