Modifying DB2 MultiNode Subclient Properties Using the Commvault Command Line Interface

Use XML to modify DB2 MultiNode subclient properties. Run the operation from the command line, or automate configuration by combining command line operations in a script.

The XML parameters can be included in the XML file, or specified on the command line when they frequently change. For more information on command line parameters and XML elements, see Command Line - Syntax.


  1. On the DB2 MultiNode Agent host, run the qlogin command to log on to the CommServe.
  2. Download the UpdateSubclient.xml file and save it on the computer from where you will run the command.
  3. Open the UpdateSubclient.xml file, add your specific parameters and save the file.

    For information on supported subclient XML parameters, see Available XML Parameters for DB2 MultiNode Subclient Configuration.

  4. On the command line, go to Software_Installation_Directory/Base and type the command.

    qoperation execute -af xml_path\update_subclient_template.xml -appName 'DB2 MultiNode' -clientName 'client_name' -instanceName 'dbname' -backupsetName 'backupset_name'-subclientName 'subclient_name' -newName 'new_subclient_name'

  5. Run the qlogout command to log off the CommServe computer.
