Copying HFM Applications On The Command Line

The command line version of the HfmCopyApplication utility - called HfmCopyAppCmd - is a useful but often overlooked tool. Some potential uses for HfmCopyAppCmd include:
  • Scheduled copies of HFM applications - for example monthly synchronization between Production and Development environments
  • Scheduling long-running copy processes to get them performed during the night time
  • Creating a batch file to copy several HFM applications in a sequence - useful for migrations
