Linux List Partitions

0 Likes

This utility lists all of the partitions on a Linux server.



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:



linuxListPartitions.pl is a Perl script. So Perl must be installed and running on the NetWare server that this file is being loaded on. NSS must be installed to get the VFS support.



To run the perl script type:



perl linuxListPartitions.pl


Example:
perl linuxListPartitions.pl <enter>


This would list all of the partitions on the server.



Sample output:



ask:/b # perl linuxListPartitions.pl 
file is now open
</_admin/Manage_NSS/manage.cmd
