I'm using Geth to set up a private ethereum network and this is the command:

$ geth --identity "MyTestNode" --datadir "SomeDir" init genesis.json --rpc --rpcaddr "localhost" --rpcport "8000" --rpccorsdomain "*" --port "30303" --nodiscover --ipcapi "admin,db,eth,debug,miner,net,shh,txpool,personal,web3" --rpcapi "db,eth,net,web3" --autodag --networkid 1900 --nat "any" console 

But I'm getting that -rpc is provided but not defined and I don't know if everything else is correct.

    The init and console are geth commands, you can only use once per geth invocation. You should split your command in two invocations: geth [params] init genesis.json, and then geth [other params] console – Ismael Jul 3 '17 at 17:33

    The above comment is correct and should be submitted as an answer. – ethereum_alex Jul 3 '17 at 17:35
