[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

ROLE - Path for the role containing the alias definitions to be available for
       the utility session.
USAGE:

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').

USAGE:

/NODE:<machine id list>
NOTE: <machine id list> ::= <@filename | machine id> | <@filename | machine id> <,machine id list>
