This perl script will stop the current Event File List (EFL) Event Epoch for a specified NSS volume.
It uses the Virtual File Services (Originally called Virtual File Services for NetWare) which were ported over to Linux. The SDK for this API set can be downloaded from http://developer.novell.com/wiki/index.php/Virtual_File_Services_for_NetWare. The objective of the tool is to add a trustee to a file using XML as specified in the VFS for NetWare specification. It is intended to be used as a sample script for developers that may want to use the VFS API set to view and manage storage.
How to Use the file:
NWStopEventEpoch.pl is a Perl script. So Perl must be installed and running on the Linux server that this file is being loaded on. NSS must be installed to get the VFS support.
To run the perl script type:
perl linuxStopEventEpoch.pl VOLUME_NAME <enter>
Where VOLUME_NAME is the name of the NSS volume where the active EFL Epoch is to be stopped.
The user will be prompted to type in one of the 37 digit Epoch Numbers displayed above the prompt. Type in one of the active Epochs or the utility will fail, then press enter.
perl NWStopEventEpoch.pl VOL1 <enter>
A sample output would be the following
SERVER: perl NWStopEventEpoch.pl NSS1 file is now open+<_ADMIN:/Manage_NSS/Volume/NSS1/FileEvents.xml <nssRequest><fileEventList><listEpochs/></fileEventList></nssRequest>
Choose an epoch to stop and type in the complete 37 letter code including dashes.
