CHTree changes the current tree and displays all authenticated trees.

For NetWare 4.11

Installation Instructions

Copy CHTREE.EXE to the SYS:\PUBLIC directory on your server.

Usage:

CHTREE [tree name] | [/?]

Displays all authenticated trees. The current tree is marked by *. Changes the current tree to [tree name] if specified.

Directory Services operations can only be performed on the current tree. This utility programmatically switches the Current tree, meaning CHTree can be used in a batch file to do operations on multiple trees.

For example, consider the following DOS batch file:

REM ***** Begin BATCH file *****
REM List all users in the ACME_INC tree from the corp container and below.
CHTREE ACME_INC
CX .corp
NLIST user /s
REM List all user in the TEST tree from the corp container and below.
CHTREE TEST
CX .corp
NLIST user /s
REM ***** End BATCH file *****

Or consider a batch file to compare rights of users between two trees:

REM ***** Begin BATCH file *****
REM Show how Bob got rights to Lisa in the ACME tree and write to FILE1.
CHTREE ACME_INC
DSRIGHTS .bob.corp lisa > FILE1
REM Show how Bob got rights to Lisa in the TEST tree and write to FILE2.
CHTREE TEST
DSRIGHTS .bob.corp lisa > FILE2
REM ***** End BATCH file *****

Known Issues:

CHTree will NOT authenticate you to a new tree. It only switches the current tree to one of the already authenticated trees.

Frequently Asked Questions:

Q: I cannot authenticate to multiple trees.
A: You must have a client that support multiple trees. For example, Client 32 for DOS/Windows, NT, or Windows 95.

Q: When the tree names are displayed, one tree name has an asterisk (*). What does the asterisk mean?
A: The asterisk (*) indicates the current tree.
