Default Options

Default options can be set on most SnapshotCM commands. See wco(1) for details.


Set the descriptive text for snapshot to description. If description is a dash ("-"), read new description from stdin.
Freeze the named snapshots. If combined with other actions, the freeze operation is performed last.
Operate on snapshots on host.
Display normal output but do not perform the operation.
Suppress normal success output.
Unfreeze the named snapshots. If combined with other actions, the unfreeze operation is performed first.
Print internal version and exit.


Exit status is 0 on success, 1 on failure and >1 if there was a bad option or a network error.
