The Ping Identity servers provide several command-line tools for management and
administration. The command-line tools are available in the
directory for UNIX or Linux systems and
bat directory for
Microsoft Windows systems.
dsconfig tool is the text-based management tool used to
configure the underlying server configuration. The tool has three operational
- Interactive Mode

dsconfig tool also offers an offline mode using the
--offline option, in which the server does not have to be
running to interact with the configuration. In most cases, the configuration
should be accessed with the server running in order for the server to give the
user feedback about the validity of the configuration.
