Error 899E when running RIGHTS.EXE

I'm running NW6.5 SP5 on my servers here. Auditors wants a list of users
who has rights to a directory on the server and to what folders the
users has rights to.

I do a rights f:\folder /t/s/c > blah.txt but I get an error reported back:

RIGHTS-4.22 (970314) PTF-550: The system was unable to get the rights.
Error code: 899E

I ran this program as me, who has full rights to [root], so it can't be
a rights issue. The folder I'm running this command against does have
folders and files that contains Chinese characters and it's on a server
that is using an English code page. Could that have something to do with
it? I've tried the RIGHTS.EXE from a server using the English code page
and one using the Chinese code page. Still get the same error.s

Any ideas? Thanx in advance.

0x899E 158 INVALID_FILENAME: Attempted to create a file using invalid
characters in the file name.

Did you search the TIDs? I found TID 10052190 right away.

Yes, i did. But I didnt' search for 0x889E. I searched for 899E in
Netware and it returned nother. 899E and leaving the search in at
"choose a product" only returned 4 documents that were about Composer
4.0. 😞

Which product should I have searched under?

I searched on the TID that you listed and it was an 899C error instead
of "E" but I did find a TID 10025168 that talks about error codes in the
Client of which 0x899E is listed as invalid filename. So..if that's the
case, then it probably means RIGHTS.EXE didn't like or could not scan a
document that is named in Chinese.

I'll have to find another method to getting a list of rights assigned
then. Thanx for the info.

Re: Error 899E when running RIGHTS.EXE

Andrew,
Any chance of Rights.exe being updated to work with long directory names and
special characters?
It fails on a directory name longer than 8.3.

Seems like any time I try to use the "Submit an enhancement request" it
times out or bombs out. Is that a feature?

None whatsoevber, I fear, the Dos utilities were deprecated long ago. I
can only suggest looking gor a third party utility, the JRB suite is a
likely candidate.

As in, deliberate? No, of course not. There will be a Feedback link at
the bottom of the offending page where you can report any web site
problems. But first I would suggest trying a different machine, and
clearing your browser cache, to make sure it's not at your end.
