    Details

    This utility will remove all Event File List (EFL) Event Epochs, both active and used, for a specified NSS volume.

    Descriptive Text:
    This utility will remove all Event File List (EFL) Event Epochs, both active and used, for a specified NSS volume. A new Epoch will need to be started to use the linuxListFileEvents.pl to get a list of any changed files. 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:
    linuxResetEventList.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. RELATED: linuxStoptEventEpoch.pl or the linuxListEpochs.pl, and linuxStartEventEpoch.pl

    To run the perl script type:
    perl linuxResetEventList.pl VOLUME_NAME <enter>
    Where VOLUME_NAME is the name of the NSS volume where the active EFL Epoch is to be stopped.

    Example: perl linuxResetEventList.pl VOL1 <enter>

    Sample output:

    grep57:/a # perl linuxResetEventList.pl NSS1
    file is now open+</_admin/Manage_NSS/Volume/NSS1/FileEvents.xml
    <nssRequest><fileEventList><resetEventList/></fileEventList></nssRequest>
    <nssReply>
    <fileEventList>
    <resetEventList>
    <result value="0"><description>success</description></result>
    </resetEventList>
    </fileEventList>
    </nssReply>

    The specifications explain the XML tags.
