A Program to Generate Documentation on LAN Manager Servers

This article was previously published under Q101616


This article contains a REXX program that can be used to easily document much of a server's configuration--including users, groups, resources and configurable parameters.


To use the program do the following:

  • Cut-and-paste the listing beginning with (including) the first dollar sign and continuing to (but not including) the pound sign.
  • Search-and-replace the dollar sign with a forward slash (/).
  • Save the file as LANDOC.CMD or some other *.CMD name.

There are three command line switches to the program:

  • A or /A adds the results of "net access" to the document
  • G or /G adds a verbose group listing to the document
  • U or /U adds a verbose user listing to the document

"Verbose" means that instead of getting just a list of groups or users on the server you will receive information on each individual group or user.

You must run this program at the server or other OS/2 machine while logged on with ADMIN privileges. Examples of program execution at an OS/2 command prompt are:

   landoc             (this produces minimum documentation)
   landoc a           (adds the "net access" results)
   landoc g           (adds group information)
   landoc u           (adds user information)
   landoc g u         (adds user and group information)
   landoc g u a       (maximum documentation)

NOTE: This program may take some time to run. It requires a minimum temporary free disk space of approximately 24K plus 1K per user in NET.ACC and 1K per 30 groups in NET.ACC--if you use all options.
