NWUTIL Netware Utilities version Summer 1993


The first NWUTILs were written for BP Oil in Brussels Summer 1990. The first was LISTGRP. There was a need for small utilities doing simple tasks such as checking on group membership, directory existence, search, search/replace, verify server attachment, queue existence etc. They were both used as Batch File enhancers and Command Line utilities. LISTGRP was followed by GETNAME and GETID to quickly get a ObjectID for a given QueueNAme and reverse: get a ObjectName for a given ObjectID. NWUTILs utilities are used in Brussels, Antwerp and Amsterdam batch files. On Compuserve they have been downloaded more than 1000 times. NWUTIL utilities are freeware and downloadable from the Public Domain section of Compuserve's Netwire.

One important thing to remember when using NWUTIL utilities is that they all work on the Default Server. For example, if you want to display volumes on server FSA, map a drive letter to FSA and switch to that drive. Then run GETVOLS (or VOLINF).

All programs are written in Pascal 5.5 by G. Davidse using several third party/public domain libraries.

GETID gets ObjectID for given Object Name

Usage: GetId ObjectName

Returns the ObjectId (hex and decimal) and type of ObjectName

1 User
2 User Group
3 Print Queue
4 File Server
5 Job Server
6 Gateway
7 Print Server
8 Archive Queue

GETNAME gets ObjectName for given ObjectID

Usage: GetName ObjectId

where Object = 8 digit ObjectId

GETRIGHT gets and verifies netware access rights


Returns errorlevel 0 if the workstation has RWOCDSM or RWOCDPSM rights to VOLUME:PATH. Returns errorlevel 1 if not. Use Netware volume names, not DOS filenamesR=Read, W=Write, O=Open, C=Create, D=Delete, P=Parental, S=Search, M=Modify

GETVOLS display all Volumes numerical and semi graphically, for example:

ACA_NOV_ONL003\SYS Cap 200 Free 160 U 40 Mb ........ 80%
ACA_NOV_ONL003\VOL1 Cap 1024 Free 627 U 397 Mb ....... 61%
ACA_NOV_ONL003\VOL2 Cap 350 Free 233 U 117 Mb ....... 67%

GRPLIST lists all User Groups sorted by GroupName

IFMEMBER checks on group membership

Usage: IFMEMBER UserName GroupName

Returns errorlevel 1 if UserName is member of GroupName, otherwise 0

INIEDIT edits INI files

Usage: INIEDIT INIFILE [Section Name] {Field Name} Field Value

where INIFILE= filename of INI file
[Section Name]= [section] in INI file (spaces are allowed)
{Field Name}= field in [section] of INI file (spaces are allowed)

NB. This program creates a .BAK file for INIFILE

KADERC display text centralised in a box using ANSI color sequences

Usage: KADERC param1 [param2] [param3] [param4]

where param1 is the file to be displayed
max line length=75
param2-param4 ANSI color sequence: leave out the escape character

param2=text color
param3=frame color
param4=header color -first line-

LISTGRP produces a sorted list of userids

Usage: LISTGRP GroupName

displays a sorted list of all users in group GroupName limitation: max 1000 users and 100 groups, GroupName=ALL displays all Groups (sorted on Group/Userid)

NWLOADED returns the following ErrorLevels: 0 if Netware NOT Loaded , 1 if Netware Loaded but NOT Logged on , 2 if Netware Loaded and Logged on

PSCONFIG displays total Print Server configuration

Usage: PSCONFIG PrintServerName

PSCONFIG displays the total configuration of the Print Server specified by the first parameter PrintServerName on the CURRENT file server. This includes the config of all the printers and the Print Queues to be serviced. You can use this utility to easily compare your print servers accross your network with eg: PSCONFIG PSERVER1 >PRN. Note: you must have sufficient rights to the SYS:SYSTEM directory

SEARCH performs search in binary and text files

Usage: SEARCH FileIn String

where FileIn= input file, String = search pattern

SEARCH returns errorlevel 1 if String exists returns errorlevel 0 if String does not exist

Note: SEARCH supports "pascal like" strings such as "xxx#999yyy", where 999 is the THREE digit decimal representation of the character eg. qqABCxx"="qq#065#066#067xx"

SR2 perform search/replace operation in binary and text files

Usage: SR2 FileIn String1 [String2]

where FileIn = input file, String1 = search pattern, String2 = replacement pattern

SR2 replaces all occurences of String1 with String2 in a case sensitive way. Search pattern will be deleted if replacement pattern is not specified. SR2 supports "pascal like" strings like "xxx#999yyy", where 999 is a THREE digit decimal representation of the character eg. "qqABCxx" = "qq#065#066#067xx"

TIMER stores the current time in the DOS environment. next time TIMER calculates the difference between the current the and the time stored in the DOS environment; TIMER thus works as a stopwatch.: Current time: 12:27:07:71, Time difference: :07:15:17

UIG lists all groups a user is in

Usage: UIG UserId

VERIFDIR verifies directory existence

Usage: VERIFDIR [d:][path]

Returns errorlevel 0 if the directory exists or 3 if it does not exist

VERIFQUE verifies Print Queue existence

Usage: VERIFQUE QueueName

Returns errorlevel 0 if the Print Queue with QueueName exists on the current server, 1 if not existing

VERIFSRV verifies server attachment

Usage: VERIFSRV ServerName

Returns errorlevel 0 if the server is attached or 1 if it is not attached

VOLINF displays volume space by Volume (GETVOLS lists all volumes)

Usage: VOLINF VolumeName

where VolumeName=Name of a valid Netware Volume on the current server

WHOIS displays User's Full Name

Usage: WHOIS UserId



structure of TABLE: position 1-12 Ethernet address

if Ethernet address is found in TABLE return Errorlevel 0 and create following variables:

%PRG%positions 15-17
%BATCH%positions 19-26
%P1% positions 28-42
%P2% positions 44-58
%P3% positions 60-74
%P4% positions 76-90

if Ethernet address is NOT found in TABLE return Errorlevel 1 and clear all above variables
