Fmap is a full screen drive map editor for Novell Netware. Drives
can be mapped to any valid Netware Server/Volume:Directory. Fmap
also edits Netware search drive assignments, updates the netware
search drive table, and updates the DOS PATH environment
variable. Map profiles can be saved and restored from disk file.

Fmap is written in Clarion Professional Developer version 2.0
using a custom bindery interface.

System Requirements

Fmap requires a work station running DOS 3.x, with 640k RAM,
attached to a Novell File Server running Novell 2.1 or greater.

Files

The following files are on the distribution diskette:
FMAP.EXE The FMAP program
FMAP.HLP The On-Line Help file
FMAP.DOC The Documentation file

Installation

Install Fmap by copying the files listed above to any drive. It
is suggested that the files be copied to the SYS:PUBLIC directory
on the file server.

This will allow access to Fmap from any directory while logged
into the server. Assuming floppy drive is A:

NCOPY A:FMAP.* SYS:PUBLIC

A search drive should be mapped to SYS:PUBLIC so that the Fmap
utility can be accessed from any directory.







Startup

Start Fmap by typing FMAP at the DOS prompt.

The Fmap screen is divided into three columns, Drive designator,
Drive type, and Directory.







Drive Designator

Drive designator are logical drive assignments from A: through Z:
or search drive assignments S1: through S16:.

Drive Type

Each drive designator can be one of five types:

LOCAL - Local Drives are not assigned to any Netware devices.
These drives are considered local to the work station.
Local drives can be REMAPPED to Netware drive
assignments.

REMAP - Remapped drives are drives that were originally LOCAL
drives, but have re-assigned as Netware drives.

NETWORK - Network drives are logical assignments of drive
designator (A: through Z:) to Netware
Server/Volume:Directory combinations.







ROOTMAP - Root mapped drives are either REMAP or NETWORK drive
types that support Netware fake root assignments.

SEARCH - Search drives (S1: through S16:) are read from the DOS
PATH environment variable. Netware also keeps track of
search drives in the Search Drive Table. Search rules
are controlled by the SHELL.CFG file.

Because of the 16 search drive limit in Netware, all
path variables will be ignored after the 16th semi-
colon, and the path will be truncated.

Path variables over 255 characters will be truncated t
255 characters.

Directory

The directory column shows the Netware directory assignment for
the drive designator (NETWORK, REMAP, ROOTMAP), or the path
variable (SEARCH).

Netware directory assignments are in standard netware format:
SERVER/VOLUME:DIRECTORY/SUBDIRECTORY

Root map assignments are displayed as a " / " (space, slash,
space) where the root map is assigned. For example:

G: ROOTMAP SERVER1/SYS:PUBLIC / DOS

shows drive G:, root mapped at SERVER1/SYS:PUBLIC and mapped to
DOS. The dos prompt would display G:\DOS. ChDir commands can be
used to change directories on back only as far as:
SERVER1/SYS:PUBLIC

Search drive directories are displayed as they appear in the PATH
environment variable, without the trailing semi-colon.







Operation

Drive mappings can be INSERTED, DELETED, and CHANGED from this
screen.

Insert

To add a new drive mapping (A: through Z: or S1: through S16:)
press the INSERT key while any line is highlighted. The Drive Map
Form will be displayed, with the next available drive mapping
displayed in the DRIVE field.

Drive Map Form

ADD DRIVE MAP
DRIVE TYPE HANDLE

SERVER :
PATH :


Fields:
DRIVE - A: Through Z:

Enter the new drive designator to be mapped. If
the drive already exists in the mapping list, an
error will be displayed at the top of the form and
the drive designator will not be accepted.

S1: Through S16:

Enter the search drive designator to be mapped. If
the search drive already exists, the search drive
mapping will be inserted in the list at the
designated position (1 - 16).

Keys
ESC - Return to Mapping list
Enter - Accept drive designator
F1 - Display Help Screen

SERVER - Enter the server name for the drive map
assignment. If the field is left blank or an
invalid server name is entered, a list of valid
netware connections will be displayed. (See Server
Selection Table)

Keys
ESC - Return to DRIVE field.
Enter - Accept server name.
F1 - Display Help Screen

Search drives do not require a SERVER entry, and
this field will be skipped.







DIRECTORY - Enter the directory name for the drive map
assignment in the following format:

VOLUME:PATH\SUB-DIRECTORY / [optional root map]

The directory name must be a valid netware
directory name. If the VOLUME name is omitted or
invalid, a list of valid volume names for the
server will be displayed. (See Volume Selection
Table).

Keys
ESC - Return to SERVER field.
Enter - Accept directory name.
F1 - Display Help Screen

Search drives do not verify directory names, as
PATH variables in general are not checked for
syntax. If the first two characters of the
directory contain drive letter characters (A:
through Z:), the shell search drive table will be
updated to reflect them.

Once the directory name has been accepted, the
system will return to the drive map table.
Change

To change a drive mapping, select the mapping to be changed by
highlighting it on the drive map table and press ENTER. Once the
drive map form is displayed, the SERVER and DIRECTORY fields may
be edited to reflect the new map assignment.

Delete

To delete a drive mapping, select the mapping to delete by
highlighting it on the drive map table and press ENTER. The drive
map form will be displayed. Verify the delete operation by
pressing ENTER, or press ESC to abort the delete operation.

will be displayed.

The select server list displays a list of up to eight file server
names. These name represent the eight possible connections in
netware.

Select the appropriate file server by highlighting the server
name and pressing ENTER. If the file server to map the drive to
is not displayed, the user may attempt to login to a file server
by using the INSERT key. (See Login Form).







Login to Server

When the INSERT key is pressed from the connected file server
list, a list of operating servers on the network will be
displayed.

Enter the login id and password for the selected server. If an
incorrect login id / password combination is entered, the 'ACCESS

login id is highlighted will return to the select known file
server list.

When a successful login is accomplished, the system will return
to the connected file server list.

Save Map Profile

Drive maps may be saved to a file. This allows drive mappings to
be reloaded. To save a map profile, press the F3 key from the
drive map list.

Save Map Form

SAVE MAP FILE

FILENAME:


Enter the DOS file name to save the map profile to. The file name
must conform to DOS file naming conventions. When a valid file
name is entered, the profile will be saved and the system will
return to the drive map table.







Load Map Profile
Drive map profiles may be loaded from a file created with the
save map profile function. To recall a map profile, press F4 from
the drive map table.

Load Map Form

LOAD MAP FILE

FILENAME:


Enter the DOS file name of the map profile to be loaded. The file
name must conform to DOS file naming conventions. When a valid
filename is entered, the profile will be loaded and all currently
mapped drives will be deleted.

The drive map profile follows the following steps when a valid
profile file has been entered:
1. All search drives mapped to network drives are removed
from the search drive list.

2. All network drive assignments are deleted. (A: through
Z:)

3. Network drive assignments are loaded from the
designated file. If drive map assignments cannot be
performed, the drive map list will contain the
attempted mapping, with an error message preceding the
directory assignment.

4. Search drives with valid network drive assignments in
the first two characters of the directory field will be
merged into the search drive list. All locally assigned
PATH variables remain and are not loaded from the map
profile.
