Remove EFL Epoch

0 Likes

This perl script removes and EFL epoch and its file event list. 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:


linuxRemoveEventEpoch.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 linuxRemoveEventEpoch.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 linuxRemoveEventEpoch.pl VOL1 <enter>



Sample output:



grep57:/a # perl linuxRemoveEventEpoch.pl NSS1
file is now open </_admin/Manage_NSS/Volume/NSS1/FileEvents.xml
<nssRequest><fileEventList><listEpochs/></fileEventList></nssRequest>

Choose an epoch and type in the complete 37 letter code including dashes.
999b2e58-8ee7-01db-80-00-7d12a3031248

The specifications explain the XML tags.
