DSRMENU.SH and eDir 8.8


Does anyone know if the dsrmenu.sh script is supported in eDir 8.8? It
does not show up in the initial menu when you run the script and I can
not find any reference to it on the support site that would suggest it
is still supported. Would be a shame if it is not. We need something
like that or even better a nssmu type interface. THANKS.

Re: DSRMENU.SH and eDir 8.8

I do not know, but it may help to understand what you regularly do in
ndsrepair that cannot be done via other, probably better, ways. For
example, should basically be used for checking health status (iMonitor
does it better, faster, prettier, and consistently across platforms) and
doing actual repair (which should be pretty rare; I haven't needed to do
one, even for any of my customers, in probably a year); even then, they
can be started from iMonitor.

I think dsrmenu was just a shell script, so you could always update it to
work with 8.8, though 9.0 is now in beta and may change things again.

You just have to update the version section in the script or completely
remove the version check.
I used to have a version where I removed the version check.

The version info is used throughout the script, not just in the
beginning. Some Repair options are only valid for some versions of
eDir. I think it is mostly an 8.0 versus all other options. Having
said that, I was looking to see if anyone knows if Novell officially
supports it's use in 8.8. I suspect they are trying to move everyone to
iMonitor which is fine. As was mentioned above, you can probably do
everything from iMonitor. I just like the tried and true. It's all
about what you are used to. Thanks.

I don't think/believe there's any official support for using it.
Generally better to learn the CLI switches and only use it when it's
appropriate to use it to fix a problem (most people use it incorrectly as
a diagnostic tool - the timesync check is about the only thing that I
would recommend using it for as a first pass diagnostic tool).
