nwbocreate: Create a NetWare Bindery Object


nwbocreate - Create a NetWare Bindery Object


nwbocreate [ -h ] [ -S server ] [ -U user name ] [ -P password | -n ] [ -C ] [ -o object name ] [ -t type ] [ -r read-flag ] [ -w write-flag ]


nwbocreate creates the specified NetWare Bindery Object.

nwbocreate looks up the file $HOME/.nwclient to find a file server, a user name and possibly a password. See nwclient(5) for more information. Please note that the access permissions of $HOME/.nwclient MUST be 600 for security reasons.



-h is used to print out a short help text.

-S server

server is the name of the server you want to use.

-U user

user is the user name to use for login.

-P password

password is the password to use for login. If neither -n nor -P are given, and the user has no open connection to the server, nwbocreate prompts for a password.


-n should be given if no password is required for the login.


By default, passwords are converted to uppercase before they are sent to the server, because most servers require this. You can turn off this conversion by -C.

-o object name

The name of the object to be created.

-t object type

The type of the object. Object type must be specified as a decimal value. Common values are 1 for user objects, 2 for group objects and 3 for print queues. Other values are allowed, but are usually used for specialized applications.

-r read-flag

-w write-flag

Read security and write security may each have one of the following values:

 ANYONE:     Anyone may access the object
 LOGGED:     Anyone who is logged in may access the 
 OBJECT:     Anyone who is logged in as the object or
    SUPERVISOR equivalent may access the 
 SUPERVISOR: Anyone who is logged in as SUPERVISOR 
    equivalent may access the object
 NETWARE:    Only the Bindery may access the object
