Imports data into an existing repository.

You can import data in text formats, either created manually or created by the Export action.


This action uses port 4000 to instruct the group server located on a computer with the IP address to import c:\NT\datastore.txt into the NT repository and to overwrite any information currently in the NT repository.

This example adds user DOMAIN\JSMITH to group DOMAIN\USERS.
