Novell Cool Solutions: Cool Tool
Automate some critical NDS processes and keep a history.
|Posted:||10 Jan 2003|
Please read the note from our friends in legal before using this file.
With this utility:
a) You can schedule NDS Tools to generate a DIB set on a server, then copy out the DIBs to a central location.
b) You can have NDS Tools generate a TRUSTEE back on your server and copy the file to a central location.
c) Generate and copy out a config.txt.
The Utility even grabs the dstrace.dbg* and copies it out after the process is run and keeps a history.
Included in the installation are the following files:
Under Program Directory:
NDS TOOLS.DOC - Documentation on how to use the application
NDSTOOLS.MDB - The DB that all the events are stored in
NDSTOOLS.EXE - The application executable
TRUST1102.EXE - Trustee NLM and Docs (Provided by Novell)
README.TXT - This file
Under Scripts Directory:
BASIC.NCF - Performs basic NDS Health Check
BACKGRND.NCF - Kick off background processes
CLEANUP.NCF - Kicks off processes like the Janitor and Flatcleaner
DSTOFF.NCF - sets dstrace to MIN, NODEBUG, and turns dstrace off (grabs dstrace.dbg)
GETCFG.NCF - Loads CONFIG.NLM and copies the config.txt file
GETDIB.NCF - Loads DSREPAIR -RC then copies DIB files
SCHEMA.NCF - Kicks off a schema sync
STATE.NCF - Checks current state of NDS
TEMPLATE.NCF - Empty file with instructions to create your own NCFs
TRUSTEE.NCF - Loads TRUSTEE.NLM and copies the trustee.txt file
*The DSTOFF.NCF must be scheduled to run after the process, in order to reset the DSTRACE options and close the log file.
