XREN.EXE - rename invalid directory/file names

Author: Wolfgang Schreiber

XREN is a DOS tool that allows to rename weird directories or
files on NetWare 386.

- The best way to do so is by accessing the file/dir from a Mac
workstation (Unix might also help). If these are not available,
follow the procedures described below.

- Invalid names include names longer than 8.3 characters, invalid
characters, weird names (e.g. 'A.B.C' or '.BAK').

- XREN uses the CLIB Mac/AFP calls to access invalid directory names.


Procedure:

- Create a verified backup of your server (hopefully not needed)

- add the Mac Name Space to the volume in question (if not yet
available. Before doing so be sure to have some available (ca.
2%) free volume disk space. See your manual for details)
This is done by 2 commands:
LOAD MAC
ADD NAME SPACE MAC TO

- call XREN.EXE (syntax is displayed when entered without parameters)
Syntax: XREN
e.g. "XREN VOL1:TEST .BAK XYZ.BAK" (case sensitive !!!)

- Optional: Remove the Mac Name Space by running VREPAIR.NLM
