BO XI 3.0 - eventupdater.bat script usage

After importing a BIAR file, my events are all not working. I understand that there is an eventupdater.bat script located in the BO XI 3.0 scripts directory.

However each time I run it, it always fails to do anything. I guess I'm just not getting the syntax of it right. Can someone provide an example that they've used or spot what I'm doing wrong?

According to the script info:

Usage: EventUpdater -oldeventserver <old event server friendly name> -neweventserver <new event server name> [-cms <cms>] [-user <username>] [-password <password>] [-authentication secAuthType]

Is it correct to assume

1. that anything in the square [] brackets is optional

2. anything in the <> brackets is not optional

3. the <> brackets themselves are to be left out

4. that there is a space between the command/parameter prefixed with - and the parameter value passed

So if above understanding is correct, I've been trying the following syntax without success:

eventupdater -oldeventserver boxir2cms -neweventserver boxi30cms

I have also tried:

eventupdater -oldeventserver boxir2cms -neweventserver boxi30cms -cms boxir2cms -user Administrator -password test -authentication enterprise
