The following are available options:

  • -b,--bootstrapConf <arg> Existing Bootstrap Configuration file (required)

  • -p,--proxyDN <arg> Proxy or User DN (required for secured nodes)

  • -m,--message <arg> Bulletin message (required)

  • -l,--level <arg> Status level of bulletin - INFO, WARN, ERROR

  • -v,--verbose Verbose messaging (optional)

  • -h,--help Help Text (optional)
