Last modified on NSS volumes?

I can get a list of files and their ***last accessed*** dates all day long. However, that time stamp got over-written by the backup software, so that if the file was accessed today, the backup software backed it up and re-stamped the access time to 12 midnight.

Is there a way to pull a list of last >>>modified<<< off of a NSS volume? The Netware TBX dir/ls command comes to mind, but the documentation isn't clear on this one (assume that the time/date stamp is last accessed or created?).

What about a BASH shell command?

Thanks!

Hmmm... forgot to mention that I need the results exported to a file somewhere. The MAN pages for TBX doesn't list any piping options.

Thanks! Tim

DSRAZOR for eDirectory can give you reports of files with any of the
following fields - last modified date, creation date, last accessed date,
last archived date, owner, size, and file attributes (inhibit delete, purge
immediate, etc). The NSS volumes can be on NetWare or Linux. The results
can be sent out to a CSV file or a TXT file.

We can customize the applet to fit your search criteria (if any) and which
information you want displayed in the report. For example, we could set it
up to show all files or only files that meet certain criteria and send the
results out to a CSV file that includes their last modified date, owner, and
size. If this is a report you will need to run regularly, the applet can be
saved as an EXE file to be automated with a task scheduler.

Without running up a test server, can't ndir.exe do that?

Sure, just like "dir", or even windows explorer.

"dir /? reveals:

/TC lists the creation timestamp.
/TA lists the access timestamp.
/TW lists the modification timestamp.
