We're looking to implement Siebel Object Tagging in our development environment so when migrating repository changes to other environments, we don't need to migrate the whole repository. I've generated a Siebel Delta File in our Development environment which just contains a comment on a BC and taken the exported SDF to another target environment. When I try to import this SDF via command line, it says there are no SIF files found. The following is the command I used:

C:\siebel\8.1\Tools_1\BIN\siebdev.exe /iPackMode /c c:\siebel\8.1\Tools_1\bin\enu\tools_cm.cfg /d ServerDataSrc /u <UserName> /p <Password> /batchimport "Siebel Repository" overwrite c:\siebel\8.1\Build_area\Dev_Export_Test\Dev_Export_Test.sdf c:\siebel\8.1\Build_area\sdf_import.log

I can see in the Siebel Tools guide that an SDF can be imported using Siebel Tools but we want to automate it (so use command line). Is there a way to import a SDF file using the command line. Could a workaround be to re-name the SDF to a SIF extension instead? As the SDF/SIF only contains the changed/new elements of an object, could this have the potential to wipe out all of the other elements of an object?
