To enable filename mapping, use the /af (alternate filename) option with the /f option in the database reference file.
The /fs (filename string) option used in conjunction with the /af option enables you to substitute characters at the start of a filename. This is particularly useful for mapping pathnames.
fs /d dbase.ref /f old.dat /af new.dat fs /d dbase.ref /fs c: /af e:
adds entries to the database reference file dbase.ref which specify that:
If the Fileshare Server finds an entry specifying an alternate filename, any character string substitution specified by a /fs option is applied to the new filename.
After processing any string substitution specified by an /fs option, the Fileshare Server does not search the database reference file for any matching /f option using the new filename.
Fileshare processes all filenames as relative to the Fileshare Server's current directory if you have not given a fully qualified filename after the /f option or a fully qualified filename is not passed from the Fileshare Client.
All filenames and paths are forced to upper case by Fileshare Servers not running on the UNIX operating system and are expanded to include the full path to ensure matching. Filenames specified with the /af option are not modified.
fs /d dbase.ref /f file1.dat /af c:\data\file2.dat
This example adds entries to the database reference file dbase.ref that specify that file accesses to the file file1.dat are mapped to the alternate filename file2.dat.
fs /d dbase.ref /f file1.dat /af c:\data\file2.dat fs /d dbase.ref /fs c: /af e:
This example adds entries to the database reference file dbase.ref that specify that all requests made to the data file file1.dat are redirected to the alternate filename and, in addition, the alternate filename is changed, using string substitution, to be on drive e:.
