changing file owners

Having just read:
http://forums.novell.com/group/novell.support.netware.6x.administration-tools/readerNoFrame.tpt/@thread@26479@F@10@D-@+26479/@article@26479

I find I have the same problem with flag.exe. With a mapped drive and a
reasonably simple directory structure, I get the following error after
issuing the following command.

FLAG W:\setup.inx /NAME=.user.ou.o
FLAG-4.16 PTF-980818-625: This utility was unable to allocate the volume
handle.

I have considered the problem may be with long file names and have tried
variously surrounding the file names in quotes. No joy. I believe this
should be possible and easily accomplished using the netware flag utility
and reject the notion that a third-party application should be required.

Unfortunately, if flag.exe doesn't work the only other free alternative
that I know of is to change file ownership for thousands of files
one-at-a-time and by hand in ConsoleOne.

Your help appreciated!

changing file owners

This is on NW65sp3, NSS volumes, and seems to occur on file names including
spaces or, perhaps, deep/long directory path.

Thanks again.

It appears that the toolbox.nlm flag utility doesn't include anything
similar to the exe's /owner and /name functionality. Am I missing something?

Nope, seems I mislead you. Sorry 'bout that.
There's a set parameter which determines the maximum subdirectory tree
depth. You might try increasing that. Unfortunately I don't remember the
name of it just now 😞
