How to import "external relationships" via CLI in OnCommand 5 Core

Is there a way to import external relationships from the dfm/dfpm CLI command sets?  I can see all external relationships via the following command:

          dfpm relationship list -a

The output of the above command gives the DB entry with its corresponding "relationship ID".  I'm hoping there is a way to reference this ID in a dataset import operation via the CLI.  If powershell cmdlets help out here, that is an acceptable solution as well...

Hi,

You can use the below command to import the relationship to dataset. But you need to specify the source and destination as reported in "dfpm relationship list" command.

[root@05 ~]# dfpm dataset import help

NAME

    import -- import relationship into a dataset

SYNOPSIS

    dfpm dataset import [ -D ] [ -C ] [ -N <destination-node-name> ]

        <dataset-name-or-id>

        { [ <destination-volume-name-or-id> ] |

        [ <destination-qtree-name-or-id> ] }

DESCRIPTION

    Import a data protection relationship, the source of the

    relationship and the destination volume into a dataset.

    If -D option is specified, only dry run results will be

    displayed. No changes will be made to the dataset.

    If -C option is specified, command only succeeds if the

    relationship and its endpoints can be imported without

    generating any warning or error results.

    The -N option specifies the destination node to which the

    destination volume or qtree will be added.  If not

    specified, the dataset must have two nodes and the

    destination object will be added to the non-primary node.

Exactly what I was looking for... I missed it in the non-alphabetical listing of dfpm dataset .... commands!

thanks!
