I. ABSTRACT
________________________________________

TOOLBOX.NLM provides various utility functions to be executed
on the server console or via NCF files (without involving any clients).

PLEASE READ:
Toolbox 1.9d is a backward compatible version of TOOLBOX that will
load on NetWare 3.x (with LIB312A applied), NetWare 4.10 (with LIBUPE
or later), and stock NetWare 4.11 and greater servers.
It will continue to be available because of backward
compatibility, however enhancements will be limited.

Toolbox 2.x is the next generation toolbox that will only load on
NetWare 4.11 with support pack 5 and greater, and NetWare 5. It has many
enhanced features that could not be placed in this version because
of the lack of library support.
If you are running NetWare 4.11 and greater servers, you would be
well served to get Toolbox v2.x.
New Toolbox v2.x features include:
  Flag (attribute utility)
  Multi-tree authentication
  Connection management
  Remote NLM loading and unloading
  Java and Applet execution helper
  Long name space support (4.11 w/ support pack 6, and NetWare 5)
  Hex/Decimal/Binary conversion utilities

NOTE: This utility helps system administrators. It is provided
free of charge as a courtesy, and therefore, is not a Novell
supported product.

II. INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
________________________________________

Copy TOOLBOX.NLM to the SYS:\SYSTEM directory on your server.

NOTE: 3.x servers require CLIB from LIB312A to be loaded.
        4.10 servers require Modular CLIB from LIBUPE or later.

        If the above requirements are not met, Toolbox may not
        be able to load because of unresolved symbols.

________________________________________

III. USAGE
________________________________________

Loading:

     load TOOLBOX

After loading, general help can be obtained with the console command:

     TOOLBOX
     
A command listing is done with the command:

     TOOLS

IV. PRODUCT DESCRIPTION
________________________________________

TOOLBOX is a collection of utilities that can be used at the
server console, or executed from NCF files. All utilities,
except where specified, allow operations on the local DOS partition,
the local server's Volumes, and remote server's Volumes.

The utilities provided by Toolbox are:
     Authset - Set username and password for easy authentication
     Beep - Ring the bell
     Chdir(c,pwd)- Change or View Current Directory
     Copy (cp) - Copy utility
     Del (rm) - Delete utility (not supported on 3.x DOS Partitions)
     Delay - Delay command
     Dir (ls) - Directory utility
     Echo - Echo message to the console
     Mkdir (md) - Make Directory utility
     Move (mv) - Move utility (not supported on 3.x DOS Partitions)
     Purge - Purge deleted files
     Rmdir (rd) - Remove Directory utility
     Shutdown - Shutdown and restart server
     Startup - Edit the startup file
     Toolbox - General help screen for Toolbox
     Tools - Display list of available tools
     Type (cat) - View text files on the screen
     

Authset SYNTAX:
        authset Username Password
             Username = User object for authen. to NDS or remote server(s)
             Password = Password for above user (Enter * to be prompted)

        Description:
          - Username and Password are only used by TOOLBOX utilities when
            when authentication is required but no Username and Password
            was specified for the command
          - Once they are set, their values may not be viewed
          - If Username has no password, specify ""
          - To unset their values, use "" (ie. authset "" "")

        EXAMPLE:
                authset admin homer

                After being set, if a utility was executed that required
                authentication to a remote server, and you didn't specify
                a Username and Password on the command line for that utility,
                then the username and password specified above would be used.

Beep SYNTAX:
        beep
        
        Description:
          - Rings the bell on the console

Chdir SYNTAX:
        chdir [Path]
        c
        pwd

             Path = [servername/]VolOrDrive:[path]
                        = ..[/][...]
                        = /path

        Description:
          - When set, "Path" will be prepended to all filespec and path
            arguments that do not include a colon
          - chdir or pwd with no parameters will display the current path
          - Set the path (default of SYS:) by doing: chdir ""
          - Any number of dots can be used to go back n - 1 directories
          - To use the existing volume or drive, preface new path with /

        Known Issues:
          - The commonly known command "cd" cannot be used because of
            conflicts with the CDROM.NLM "cd" command.
            If on 4.11 you can use the alias command if cdrom.nlm is not used
          - No checking is done to assure that the path specified
            is valid.
          - Supports only DOS name space

        EXAMPLES:
                chdir sys:
                chdir sys:public/nls
                chdir /system/nmx
                        Use the current drive or volume and append /system/nmx
                chdir c:\nwserver
                chdir ..
                        Move back one directory from the current
                chdir ../../public
                        Move back two directories from the current
                        and into public
                chdir ....

             DestPath = [servername/]VolOrDrive:path[/file]
             Username = User object for authen. to NDS or remote server(s)
             Password = Password for above user (Enter * to be prompted)
             Options = preface option(s) with '-' or '/' (ie. -bsa)
                          a - do not copy DOS & NetWare Attributes
                          b - force Bindery authentication only
                          d - copy Empty subdirectories
                          e - do not remove Empty dirs during a move
                          l - Log activity summary to the file:

                          m - Move file/dirs (delete original after copy)
                          r - overwrite Read-only files (on NetWare partitions)
                          s - delete filespec in current and all subdirs and
                              will removeany empty subdirectories when completed

        Limitations/Known Issues:
          - For NDS, it will only authenticate to the local tree
          - Will only copy between two remote servers if:
             * both are in the same local tree
             * both are bindery connections with the same username/password.
            NDS and bindery authentication cannot be used concurrently
          - Supports only DOS name space
          - No wildcards are allowed in destination filespec
          - Trustees and extended attributes are not copied
          - Files copied to the DOS partition will not preserve dates & attribs
          - The Move feature is not supported from 3.x DOS Partitions

VI. KNOWN ISSUES
________________________________________

General Issues:

NOTE: 3.x servers require CLIB from LIB312A to be loaded.
        4.10 servers require Modular CLIB from LIBUPE or later.

        If the above requirements are not met, Toolbox may not
        be able to load because of unresolved symbols.

Issue 1: Only supports DOS name space. Investigation into
          support of long names surfaced many bugs and limitations
          in the current API that made Long name support unfeasible.
Issue 2: Cannot access DOS partitions on remote servers.
Issue 3: NDS authentication can be done on the local tree only.
Issue 4: Max recursive depth for /s options is 15
Issue 5: When accessing the floppy drive on 3.12 or 4.10 without
          the new modular CLIB, the floppy light will stay on.
          To turn it off, at the console type: "a:"
          It will report that it's an Unknown Command, but the light
          will turn off. This is a not toolbox problem but a CLIB problem
          that was fixed in modular CLIB that unfortunately cannot
          be loaded on 3.12.
Issue 6: IMPORTANT FOR 3.12 SERVERS.
          If TOOLBOX is loaded in the AUTOEXEC.NCF it may abend the
          server when any command is issued. It is a timing issue
          during the Load when some pointers to CLIB routines are
          not properly set. Some have reported that if they are loading
          many things in the AUTOEXEC, they can load toolbox at the
          end and make it work, but it's a gamble. This issue is being
          investigated.

Authset:
None:

Beep:
None:

Chdir (pwd):
Issue 1: Does not check for existence of directory when being set.

Copy (cp):
Issue 1: If files already exist in the Destination path, they
          will be overwritten without warning.
Issue 2: Extended attributes and trustees are not copied.
Issue 3: Files copied to the DOS partition will not preserve

VII. FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
________________________________________

Q: Can I run Toolbox commands in an NCF file?
A: Yes, as long as you load TOOLBOX.NLM before executing the NCF file.
   If you try to load TOOLBOX.NLM in the same NCF file as toolbox
   commands, all commands will fail because TOOLBOX.NLM is still loading
   and has not yet registered the commands.
   We recommend that TOOLBOX.NLM be loaded in AUTOEXEC.NCF.
   Loading TOOLBOX in AUTOEXEC.NCF is a problem on 3.12 servers however.
   Some have reported that if they are loading many things in the
   AUTOEXEC, they can load toolbox at the end and make it work, but
   it's a gamble. This issue is being investigated.

   Do not run commands in a NCF file that require keyboard input
   such as Dir or Type. (As if you wanted to anyway!)

Q: Why is my console command frozen when I run any toolbox command?
A: All toolbox commands are single threaded and attached to the console
   prompt. This was done to guarantee execution order when toolbox
   commands were executed from NCF files. The prompt returns when
   the command has finished execution.

Q: When I get help on a command, or use the Type command, my console
   prompt will not come back?
A: The prompt will return when you close the Help or Type screen that
   is displaying output from the command.

Q: My 3.12 server Abends in the AES Sleep Process, or with an
   Invalid Resource Tag.
A: Update to the latest 3.12 CLIB libraries (LIB312.EXE)

Q: I'm running on a 4.x server and I'm trying to authenticate to
   a 3.x server, but it says NWDSAuthenticate error 251.
   I'm using the right username and password for my 3.x server.
A: The problem is that the username and password you are using
   is also valid for NDS. But when NDS attempts to authenticate
   you to the 3.x server, it cannot do it.
   You need to specify the /b switch on the command you are
   executing to force the authenticator to use Bindery
   authentication instead of NDS authentication.

Q: How do I specify my NDS Username? What is my current context?
A: Specify the entire distinguished name if you are having
   authentication problems. The authenticator's context is [Root].
   For example, if my user object Bryan, were in:
     OU=acctg.O=novell
   I would specify my username as:
     .bryan.acctg.novell
   Note the leading "." which is specifying an absolute path
   regardless of the current context.

Q: Why do I get the errors: File not Found, or Cannot create
   the destination file, when the files are really there?
A: You will get these errors if you don't have the proper rights.
   Toolbox utilities do not check rights before it attempts
   to carry out your request, so it will return errors like
   those mentioned above.

Q: Why doesn't Chdir allow just "cd"?
A: It interferes with the "cd" command used by the cdrom nlm.
   So what if you don't use the cdrom nlm? Sorry, to avoid
   confusion it was decided to leave the command "cd" alone.

   If you don't have the cdrom.nlm loaded and you are on 4.11,
   you can use the ALIAS command to equate cd to chdir as follows:
      alias cd chdir
      

Q: When I access the floppy drive on 3.x, the light won't turn off.
A: This is a CLIB problem on 3.x. To turn the light off after
   you are done accessing the floppy drive, at the console type
   the following:
      A:
   The command processor will report an Unknown Command but the light
   will turn off.
