The database reference file contains references to data files and the actions that Fileshare Server performs on them.
This section explains how to create and update a database reference file in order to make use of the features described earlier
in this chapter.
You should only create or change a database reference file using the Database Reference File Maintenance Utility. This is
because the file contains information that is stored in a special format.
In this section, options are shown starting with a forward slash (/). This is how you specify the options on Windows. On
UNIX, use the hyphen (-) character instead of the forward slash.
Filenames are shown using the Windows naming convention. On UNIX, use the UNIX filenaming conventions.
Invoke the Database Reference File Maintenance Utility using the /d (database) option, for example:
fs /d dbase.ref [options]
where the parameters are:
- Name of the database reference file. If the database reference file does not exist, it is created.
- These specify the operation to be carried out on the database reference file. Each initiation of the Database Reference File
Maintenance Utility adds a record to or removes a record from the database reference file specified.
You can add several types of record to the database reference file.
