    This perl script resets the event file list by removing the active Epoch.

    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 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: 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 VOLUME_NAME <enter> 

    Where VOLUME_NAME is the name of the NSS volume where the active EFL Epoch is to be stopped.


    perl VOL1 <enter>

    Sample output:

    SERVER: perl NSS1 file is now open+</_admin/Manage_NSS/Volume/NSS1/FileEvents.xml <nssRequest><fileEventList><resetEventList/></fileEventList></nssRequest> 
     <result value="0"><description>success</description></result>
