This is an update (read: better way) to the Cool Solutions article: Searching Extra Large Trees


Another way is to use DSBROWSE on a NetWare 5/6 server to perform the search.


Searching ALL Object Types

To search for all objects within single, multiple or all partitions on ONE server.

  1. Load DSBROWSE.
  2. Choose Object Search.
  3. Enter * (asterisk) in the Name field in the Object Information section.
  4. Scroll down to Addition Search Criteria and press ENTER.
  5. Highlight the partition(s) you wish to search, press F5, and then F10 when you have finished.
  6. Press F10 to perform search and Esc when the Error Report screen appears.

The above method can be used to determine how many objects are in the server's External Reference Partition.

Searching for Specific Object Types

The above can be tailored to perform searches for object names and/or object types.

You can specify object names by entering the desired name in the Name field within the Object Information field.

You can also specify object type by entering the desired search type (User, Workstation for example) in the Class field within the Object Information Field.
