The limreport and limadm commands provide the administrator with an easy way to save and restore the contents of lnodes for any number of users. Use the limreport command to select and extract the lnodes that are to be saved, and use limadm to restore them. This combination of commands is most commonly used for copying lnodes and for altering the lnode structure, as discussed in the following sections.
The limreport command also provides a flexible way to select and display users' attributes. It provides two levels of selection: selection of lnodes, and selection of attributes to be displayed for each lnode selected. The lnode selection is achieved by specification of a select-expression, which may be a single condition or a set of conditions joined by logical operators in a C-style syntax. The attribute selection is achieved by listing the attributes' symbolic names. The way in which the attributes will be displayed is specified by a format control string, similar to the C function limreport, with extensions to handle special Solaris Resource Manager types. If a format control string of '-' is specified, limreport uses default formats for each attribute displayed. Refer to limreport(1SRM) for further details.
