Importing a Change Set from the File System

Importing a Change Set from the File System

To import a change set from the file system into the target instance, execute the following command from the data sync tool directory:

synctool -l -r <root_dir> -d <import_dir>


  • <import_dir> is the directory that contains the data files (jobunit.dat and jobdescriptor.xml) for the change set(s) you want to import. Put quotes around the directory if it contains spaces.
  • <root_dir> is the parent directory that contains the import directories

For example:

synctool -l -r stored_change_sets -d 9B6CD70A-1E1B-38E4-B190-A2CDD603C7DE_20091110114748
