Initial DB Load from Command Line

Hi.  Has anyone loaded the db for the first time via the command line?  I have always done this via the DB Load GUI utility.  For like 15+ years.   :)

I know that doing it via command line is possible, but I'm running into issues.  I'm trying to do it this way because a) I'm having network connectivity issues from my laptop to the db (connectivity from the Automation Engine to DB is fine) and b) I was told that via command line is faster.

I have opened up a ticket with support as well, but thought I'd throw this out here also in case someone else has any thoughts or has run into this particular issue before.

I use this command:

java -jar ucybdbld -B -X/u02/automic/utility/db/general/11.2/UC_UPD.TXT

I even fully qualify the location of the ucybdbld program:

java -jar /u02/automic/utility/bin/ucybdbld -B -X/u02/automic/utility/db/general/11.2/UC_UPD.TXT

And I get an error about a corrupt jar file.

Error: Invalid or corrupt jarfile /u02/automic/utility/bin/ucybdbld

I've re-installed the utilities just in case there was some weird corruption - basically just copied over the TAR file again and same thing.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance.
