3.5.5. Obtain Help with the Management CLI


Sometimes you might need guidance if you need to learn a CLI command or feel unsure about what to do. The Management CLI features a help dialog with general and context-sensitive options. (Note that the help commands dependent on the operation context require an established connection to either a standalone or domain controller. These commands will not appear in the listing unless the connection has been established.)

  1. For general help

    From the Management CLI, enter the help command:
    [standalone@localhost:9999 /] help
  2. Obtain context-sensitive help

    From the Management CLI, enter the help -commands extended command:
    [standalone@localhost:9999 /] help --commands
  3. For a more detailed description of a specific command, enter the command, followed by --help.
    [standalone@localhost:9999 /] deploy --help

The CLI help information is displayed.
