[global switches] <command> The following global switches are available: NAMESPACE - Path for the namespace the alias is to operate against. Namespaces are always relative i.e. if the namespace does not begin with a '\\' it will be assumed to be relative to the current namespace. USAGE: /NAMESPACE:<namespace> ROLE - Path for the role containing the alias definitions to be available for the utility session. USAGE: /ROLE:<namespace> NOTE: Roles are actually namespaces and should be treated in the same way - i.e. relative paths should behave appropriately (default namespace is '\\root\cli'). NODE - Specify which servers the alias will operate against. USAGE: /NODE:<machine id list> NOTE: <machine id list> ::= <@filename | machine id> | <@filename | machine id> <,machine id list> IMPLEVEL - Determine which level the command line should impersonate. Default is 'Impersonate'. USAGE: /IMPLEVEL:<implevel> Various implevels are as follows: Impersonation Level ------------------ Anonymous Identify Impersonate Delegate Note: Use /AUTHORITY switch for specifying the authority type. AUTHLEVEL - Specify the level the command line should authenticate. Default is 'Pkt'. USAGE: /AUTHLEVEL:<authlevel> Various authlevels are as follows: Authlevel --------- Default None Connect Call Pkt Pktintegrity Pktprivacy LOCALE - Specify the language id the command line should use. USAGE: /LOCALE:<locale identifier> NOTE: The parameter to the 'LOCALE' switch is of the form MS_XXX. Where XXX for English is 409, XXX for Finnish is 40b. PRIVILEGES - Enable or disable all privileges. USAGE: /PRIVILEGES:<option> NOTE: Allowed value(s) for <option> is either ENABLE or DISABLE. TRACE - Specify whether output debug information is to be copied to stderr during the processing of the request(s). USAGE: /TRACE:<option> NOTE: Allowed value(s) for <option> is either ON or OFF. RECORD - Logs all entered commands and WMIC's output to a file in XML format. USAGE: /RECORD:<filepath> INTERACTIVE - Sets or resets the interactive mode. USAGE: /INTERACTIVE:<option> NOTE: Allowed value(s) for <option> is either ON or OFF. FAILFAST - Sets or resets the FailFast mode. USAGE: /FAILFAST:<option> NOTE: Allowed value(s) for <option> is either ON or OFF. OUTPUT - Specifies the mode for output redirection. USAGE: /OUTPUT:<outputspec> NOTE: <outputspec> ::= (STDOUT | CLIPBOARD | <filename>) STDOUT - Output will be redirected to the STDOUT. CLIPBOARD - Output will be copied on to CLIPBOARD. <filename> - Output will be written to the specified file. APPEND - Specifies the mode for output redirection. USAGE: /APPEND:<outputspec> NOTE: <outputspec> ::= (STDOUT | CLIPBOARD | <filename>) STDOUT - Output will be redirected to the STDOUT. CLIPBOARD - Output will be copied on to CLIPBOARD. <filename> - Output will be appended to the specified file. USER - Provides the user to be used during the session. USAGE: /USER:<userid> NOTE: User should be provided in the form <domain>\<user>. AGGREGATE - Determines the mode of displaying results. USAGE: /AGGREGATE:<option>. NOTE: Allowed value(s) for <option> is either ON or OFF. PASSWORD - Provides the password to be used in logging on to this session. USAGE: /PASSWORD:<password> AUTHORITY - Specifies the <authority type> for the connection. USAGE: /AUTHORITY:<authority type> /? - Displays specification/syntax for help commands. USAGE: /?:[<helptype>] NOTE: Allowed value(s) for <helptype> is either BRIEF or FULL. NOTE: Enclose the switch value in double quotes, if the value contains special characters like '-' or '/'.
