DESCRIPTION
       The  ovmtlibrary command enables you to manage Oracle VM for SPARC tem-
       plates information in the following ways:

           o      -c init initializes the library


           o      -c store stores a template


           o      -c list lists templates


           o      -c delete deletes templates



       The template archive file that is used to store templates requires  the
       following:

           o      A file extension of .ova


           o      An XML configuration file that has a file extension of .ovf


           o      At least one compressed disk image that matches the informa-
                  tion in the .ovf file


           o      A checksum information file that has a file extension of .mf
                  file



       Note that an event ID is printed when you store a template. You can use
       this ID to check the status of a store operation.


       You do not need superuser permissions to run the ovmtlibrary command.


       The ovmtlibrary command includes the following options:

       -a                          Lists all versions of  the  specified  tem-
                                   plate  or  templates.  By default, only the
                                   latest version is shown.


       -c init                     Initializes the template library.


       -c store                    Stores a template in the library.


       -c list                     Lists templates in the library.


       -c delete                   Deletes templates from the library.


       -d description              Specifies a template description.


       -e event-ID                 Specifies the event ID for  which  to  show
                                   the status of a store operation.


       -f                          Forces an overwrite of an existing library.


       -h                          Shows the help message.


       -i template-ID              Specifies the ID of the template to list.


       -l library                  Specifies the path to template library.


       -m                          Produces  output  in machine-parseable for-
                                   mat.


       -n template-name            Specifies the template name.

                                   For the store operation, this option speci-
                                   fies   the   template  name  to  store.  By
                                   default, the  OVF  name  is  used  if  this
                                   option is not specified.

                                   For  the list operation, this option speci-
                                   fies the template name to list. By default,
                                   the  latest  versions  of all templates are
                                   shown.


       -o URI                      Specifies the URI of the template object to
                                   store.  Valid  URI  values include file://,
                                   http://, and ftp://.


       -o                          Lists the objects for  the  specified  tem-
                                   plate.  You  must specify the template name
                                   or template ID. If you specify  a  template
                                   name,  only  the objects in its latest ver-
                                   sion are listed.


       -p                          Shows property information for the template
                                   ID that you specify with the -i option.


       -q                          Suppresses headers and messages.


       -s                          Shows event status.


       -t type                     Specify an object type for a specified tem-
                                   plate. You must also  specify  the  related
                                   template name or template ID.


       -v                          Shows detailed information.


       -V                          Shows  version  information about this com-
