Dell Command | Update Version 2.0 User's Guide

Dell Command | Update Command Line Interface Options

The command line interface (CLI) allows administrators to use automated remote deployment infrastructure for updates. The command line interface provides basic options and does not include all features that the GUI version of the application supports.

Dell Command | Update provides a command line version of the application for use with batch and scripting scenarios. The CLI is fully automatic and has no interactive user prompts. The basic runtime options are provided as command line parameters, such as setting a catalog location, importing a new policy file, and changing the default log location.

To run the CLI interface: From the Dell Command | Update installation folder, in command prompt, run dcu-cli.exe.

To view additional information about which options are available: From the Dell Command | Update installation folder, in command prompt, run dcu-cli.exe -?.

Dell Command | Update CLI provides the return codes after the execution is complete:
  • 0 = OK/Success
  • 1 = Reboot Required
  • 2 = Fatal Error
  • 3 = Error
  • 4 = Invalid System

When you run DCU-cli.exe, if no parameters are provided, the default behavior is to check for available updates.
