Purge

Deletes from the reference data warehouse any reference table that is no longer associated with a reference table object in the Model repository.
When you run infacmd cms Purge, the Content Management Service identifies the tables that store data for reference table objects in the associated Model repository. The Content Management Service deletes all other tables from the warehouse and generates a list of the deleted tables. Run infacmd cms Purge on the master Content Management Service for the Model repository.
Note: To prevent accidental data loss, the purge operation does not delete tables if the Model repository does not contain a reference table object.
Before you run infacmd cms Purge, verify the following prerequisites:
The infacmd cms Purge command uses the following syntax:
Purge

<-DomainName|-dn> domain_name

<-ServiceName|-sn> service_name

<-UserName|-un> user_name

<-Password|-pd> password

[<-SecurityDomain|-sdn> security_domain]

[<-ResilienceTimeout|-re> timeout_period_in_seconds]
