A BCP package has been created with bcpDevKit and needs to be imported into Vault.


In order to import the package with Data Transfer Utility following steps are required:

  • Install the right autodesk_vault_data_transfer_utility_for_vault (DTU) by copying the files from the .zip to “C:\Program Files\Autodesk\ADMS Professional 20??\ADMS Console“ on the Vault Server.
  • To test if the package contains errors run following commands:
    cd "C:\Program Files\Autodesk\ADMS Professional 20**\ADMS Console"
    Vaultbcp.exe VALIDATE C:\Temp\myPackage Administrator "" Vault /ISBD /V2

    This validates the specified package against a vault named: Vault, user: Administrator and a blank password.

  • In order to import the package run following command:
    Vaultbcp.exe IMPORT C:\Temp\myPackage Administrator "" Vault /ISBD

    This imports the specified package with security, data and behaviors.
