    Details

    This perl script allows a user to set or clear the metadata archive bit on a specified NSS file. 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:

    linuxGetPoolInfo.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 linuxSetMetaDataArchiveBit.pl /path/file_name.ext yes/no <enter>
    Where /path/file_name.ext is the fully qualified name of an NSS file complete with leading slash and the path.
    And where yes means to set the bit and no means to clear the bit.

    Example: perl linuxSetMetaDataArchiveBit.pl /media/nss/NSS1/file.txt yes <enter>

    Sample output:

    grep57:/a # perl linuxSetMetaDataArchiveBit.pl /media/nss/NSS1/file.txt yes
    file is now open
