5.5. Creating New Profiles From the Command Line

You can use the --create-profile command option to create new profiles from the command line. When you use this option, Oracle Virtual Desktop Client does not run and the connect screen is not displayed.

Any configuration settings you make when using --create-profile are saved in the profile. Otherwise, default settings are used. If you specify a server to connect to, the server name is saved in the profile.

If the profile file name already exists, using the --create-profile option overwrites it.

For example, to create a new profile in the default location called myprofile that connects to the server sr-1.example.com, run the following command:

ovdc --profile myprofile --create-profile sr-1.example.com

To create the profile in a different location, use the full path name with the --profile option.
