The VFSMGR utility is used to perform a subset of the VFS management tasks that are normally done from the browser based management interface.
In order to use the VFSMGR utility you must be logged on as a user with sufficient privileges to access the files in the VFS subvol. Note that the VFSMGR utility accesses the VFS as if it were the SOAPam Server 'Administrator' user. It is possible to damage or destroy the VFS if the utility is not used correctly. You should always have a current backup before modifying an existing VFS with this utility.
The general syntax to start the VFSMGR program from TACL is
tacl> run vfsmgr / run-options / command-line-options
The standard TACL run options.
Reads commands from <command-file>. At most, one command file may be specified. The file itself cannot contain an '@' option (i.e., no nesting).
-certexport <file name> [ ! ]
Exports the certificate store from the source VFS and writes it to <file name>. If the file already exists, specify the '!' option to indicate that the file should be overwritten. The -vfs option must also be supplied when using this option.
-certimport <file name>
Imports the certificate store from the source <file name> and writes it to the target VFS. The -vfs option must also be supplied when using this option.
-check [ fix ]
Checks the internal consistency of a VFS. If the fix keyword is specified then any problems found with the VFS will be corrected.
When files are deleted from the VFS using the web folder (WEBDAV) interface, the files are only marked for deletion. The file data records are physically deleted from the VFS00 & VFS01 files over time by a housekeeping process within SOAPam Server. This option will cause the VFS00 & VFS01 data records to be immediately deleted by VFSMGR.
-create folder <folder name> [ buildpath ]
Creates the specified folder. If the buildpath keyword is not specified and the path to the new folder does not exist then the operation will fail. If the buildpath keyword is specified then the full path specified will be created.
-create group <groupname> [ <description> ]
Creates the group <groupname> with the specified description.
-create user <username> <password> [ <description> ]
Creates the user <username> with the specified <password> and user <description>. If the # character is supplied for <password>, the operator is prompted for the password string. After adding a user the operator should use the -setgroup command to add the user to the desired groups.
-delete file <filename>
Deletes the file <filename>.
-delete folder <folder> [ subfolders ]
Deletes <folder>. Specifying the subfolders keyword cause <folder> and all of its subfolders to be deleted. If the folder has subfolders and the subfolders keyword is omitted, the operation will fail.
-delete group <groupname>
Deletes the group <groupname>.
-delete user <username>
Deletes the user <username>. Note that the users 'Administrator' and 'Anonymous' cannot be deleted.
-get file <vfs file> <Enscribe file> [!] [ binary ]
Copies the contents of <vfs file> from the VFS to the Enscribe file <Enscribe file>. By default, the file is stored as en Edit file (code 101). If the ! keyword is specified and the <Enscribe file> exists, it is replaced. If the binary keyword is specified then the file will be stored as a binary stream file (code 180).
-get folder <folder> <image file> [ ! ] [ subfolders ]
Copies the contents of <folder> into <image file>. If the ! keyword is specified and the <image file> exists, the file will be replaced.
-groups <username> <add | remove> < * | <groupname list> >
Adds or removes <username> from a group or groups. If the * keyword is specified all groups are assumed. Otherwise, a single group or a list of space separated group names must be specified.
Displays documentation for the program command line options.
-info < user | group | folder > <item name>
Displays information about the specified item.
-keyexport <file name> [ ! ]
Exports the keystore from the source VFS and writes it to <file name>. If the file already exists, specify the '!' option to indicate that the file should be overwritten. The -vfs option must also be supplied when using this option.
Regenerates the VFS keystore.
-keyimport <file name>
Imports the keystore from the source <file name> and writes it to the target VFS. The -vfs option must also be supplied when using this option.
-list < users | groups >
Displays a list of currently configured users or groups.
-logclean <age> < copy <subvol> | move <subvol> | purge > [ dry-run ]
Copies, moves, or purges HTTP log files in the VFS folder /logs/http that are <age> days old or older. If 'copy' is specified, the logs are copied to the specified subvol. If 'move' is specified, the logs are copied to the specified subvol and then purged from the VFS. If 'purge' is specifed, the logs are purged from the VFS. Note the if any logs are purged, a VFS 'clean' operation is performed. If 'dry-run' is specified, command operation is simulated. Command output is displayed but no actual copy, move, or purge operations are performed.
-permissions <folder> < clear | < user | group > > <user/group name> < [ R ] [ W ] [ E ] [ B ] | clear >
Sets or clears permissions on <folder>. If the clear keyword is specified then all permissions are cleared from <folder> and the folder inherits permissions from its parent folder. If the group or user keyword is specified then the specified group or user is granted access to the folder according to the specified permissions mask. If clear is specified as the permissions mask then all permissions for the user or group are removed.
-put file <Enscribe file> <vfs file> [ ! ]
Copies the contents of Enscribe file <Enscribe file> to the VFS file <vfs file>. If the ! keyword is specified and <vfs file> exists, the file will be replaced. This command can only copy Enscribe edit (type 101) or binary stream (type 180) files.
-put folder <image file> <folder> [ ! ] [ listonly ]
Copies the contents of <image file> into <folder>. If the ! keyword is specified, then the contents of the image file will be merged into the destination folder. If the listonly keyword is specified then the contents of the image file is listed but the files are not copied to the VFS.
-password <username> <password>
Sets the password for the user <username>. If the '#' character is supplied for <password>, the operator is prompted for the password.
-setup [ <vfs subvolume > [ <vfs image file> ] ]
Creates or updates the VFS in the specified <vfs subvolume> and updates the VFS with the content from the <vfs image file>. If <vfs subvolume> is omitted then the current subvolume is assumed. If the <vfs image file> is omitted, the file "VFSIMAGE" in the VFSMGR program subvolume is used. This command will prompt the operator for confirmation before performing the action. In the case of an update, all customer created content is preserved.
Display the program banner and version.
-vfs <vfs subvolume>
Specifies the vfs subvolume to be used for this session. If not specified the current subvolume is assumed.

tacl> run vfsmgr -create folder /myfolder
