Each PingDirectory server provides command-line tools to manage, monitor, and diagnose server operations. Each tool provides a description of the subcommands, arguments, and usage examples needed to run the tool.


For detailed information and examples of the command-line tools, see the Configuration Reference Guide in the <server-root>/docs directory, or linked from the administrative console.

To view detailed argument options and examples, use --help with the each tool:

$ bin/dsconfig --help

For those utilities that support additional subcommands (such as dsconfig), list the subcommands with the following:

$ bin/dsconfig --help-subcommands

View more detailed subcommand information by using --help with the specific subcommand:

$ bin/dsconfig list-log-publishers --help
