  • It includes instructions on how to use the cubrid utility, which starts and stops various processes of the CUBRID server, the broker and manager server.
  • It includes instructions on the following: database management tasks (creating and deleting databases, adding volume, etc.), migration tasks (moving database to a different location or making changes so that it fits the system's version), and making back-ups and rollbacks of the database in case of failures.
  • It includes instructions on the system configuration.
  • It includes instructions on troubleshooting.

If you want to control the service by using cubrid utility on Windows Vista or later, it is recommended that you run the command prompt with an administrator account. If you use cubrid utility without an administrator account, the result message is not displayed even though you can run it through the User Account Control (UAC) dialog.

To run the command prompt on Windows Vista or later with an administrator account, right-click [Start] > [All Programs] > [Accessories] > [Command Prompt] and select [Run as Administrator]. In the dialog verifying authorization, click [Yes], and then the command prompt is run as an administrator account.
