If the proxy entries were not set up with the
TCPWARE_NFS_DYNAMIC_PROXY logical defined the client or server will not reload the proxy database when there are changes. You can use the NETCU RELOAD PROXY command to force the changes into effect. The reload blocks NFS activity while the client and/or server reloads the database. The client can take a significant amount of time.
/CONVERT=STREAM_CRLFoption not converting files from the client?
When an export is mounted with the
/CONVERT=STREAM_LF and a file is copied to the export, the file that is produced on the NFS server does not appear to be converted. There is no CR LF (X0A X0D) or LF (X0A) in the file.
The NFS client does not perform conversions when 'block mode transfers' are performed.
COPY and also
EDT use block mode transfers when copying or creating files. Instead of
CONVERT command can be used. Instead of
TPU can be used. Most applications do RMS sequential access when they create files on the export and these will be converted.
You can only convert files opened using RMS sequential access to
STREAM_LF format when written by the client.
TCPware’s NFS server allows you to configure how files are converted when they are read from the client and also what format to use when creating new files. These settings are controlled with the
/RFM options when adding the exports with the
NETCU ADD EXPORT command. The
/CONVERT tells the server how to convert files on reads. The default value is
STREAM_LF that is useful when the export is being accessed by UNIX systems. Exports that are going to be accessed by PC should use the
STREAM_CRLF will add a carriage return and line feed to the end of each record.
You can use the
/RFM option to control the record format of newly created files on an export. If the export is being accessed by a PC, the
/RFM=STREAM will create files without the extra carriage return in them when being edited.
Certain types of files (object files, database files, etc.) can't be converted due to their make-up or record sizes.
If you have many files of this type it might be useful to export the directory using the
