nwvolinfo - Diplay info on NetWare Volumes


nwvolinfo [ -h ] [ -S server ] [ -U user name ] [ -P password | -n ] [ -C ] [ -v volume ] [ -N ]


nwvolinfo displays information on a NetWare Server Volume.

nwvolinfo 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, nwvolinfo 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.

-v volume

The volume name to be used. Defaults to 'SYS'.


Display the information in numeric-only format for use in a pipe.
