Posted: 4 Mar 2003
This information came from Novell's documentation, plus additional switches that have been added since NetWare 5.1 and NetWare 6 have been released. To view that documentation, please go to http://www.novell.com/documentation/lg/nw6p/ndps_enu/data/aclpal1.html.
The following command line switches have been implemented into the NDPS Manager:
/DBVOLUME= The value can either be NOCHECK or the fully distinguished name of the volume you want the NDPS Manager database to live on. The NOCHECK routine is used for clustering.
/DNSNAME= This sets a DNS name to an NDPS Manager object. You will need to include the DNS information in your DNS lookup tables. NOTE: You will want to use this switch in clustering. Otherwise, the IP address of one of the cluster nodes may show up in the IPP URL instead of the DNS name. When that happens, failover is not possible. NOTE: If you get the error "The NDPS Manager can not resolve DNS name somename.domain.com" and somename.domain.com is not what you expect, you can clear the DNS name that is stored in the NDPS Manager's database. To do that, just load the NDPS Manager with the /DNSNAME= switch and no domain name. For example: LOAD NDPSM /DNSNAME=
/IPADDRESS= On a multihomed server, this specifies which IP address the NDPS Manager should bind to.
/NODATABASE Load the NDPS Manager without opening the database. The Database Options menu is displayed which lets you examine, backup, restore, resynchronize, and uninstall the NDPS Manager database.
/NOIP Prevents the NDPS Manager from binding to IP on the file server.
/NOIPX Prevents the NDPS Manager from binding to IPX on the file server.
/NOSRS Prevents the NDPS Manager from looking for an SRS. Use this switch in conjunction with the Broker's /NOADVERT switch (LOAD BROKER /NOADVERT).
/QLOADBALANCE Allows multiple printer agents to be assigned to a single print queue. The printer agents will load balance the print jobs. Please see TID 10063697 titled "Does NDPS allow for load balancing of print jobs from a native NetWare queue?"
/SETENS= Sets the preferred ENS on all printer agents to the ENS specified at load. Please see TID 10067688 titled "Setting the RMS and ENS for NDPS Manager"
/SETRMS= Sets the preferred RMS on all printer agents to the RMS specified at load. Please see TID 10067688 titled "Setting the RMS and ENS for NDPS Manager"
If you receive an error when loading one of these switches, the NDPSM.NLM that you are using does not support that switch. If you are a NetWare 5.0 customer and one of these switches does not work, you will need to upgrade to NetWare 5.1 or NetWare 6.
