By default, the software logs on to Instance001. The encryption key is chosen by default unless you provide a key with the switch –k (key must be of 16 characters). The encryption key is used for the encryption of the token received after a successful login. The token file is named cvcsession and is saved at the following location:

If there is no local installation, provide the token file path with switch ‘-f’. Subsequent commands must use this token file with switch ‘-tf’. A user can have multiple sessions where each session is associated with a unique token file.
