NAME

       nwbpadd - Set the value of a NetWare Bindery Property


SYNOPSIS

       nwbpadd [ -h ] [ -S server ] [ -U user name ] [ -P password | -n ] [ -C
       ] [ -o object name ] [ -t type ] [ -p property ] value



DESCRIPTION

       nwbpadd sets the value of  a  ITEM  type  property,  and  adds  bindery
       objects to a SET type property.

       nwbpadd 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.



OPTIONS

       -h
          -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, nwbpadd
          prompts for a password.

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

       -C
          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 touched.

       -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.

       -p property
          The name of the property to be set.

       value
          If  property  is  of  type SET, value is an object id in hexadecimal
          notation.  Otherwise, value is either a string value to be  written,
          or  a  count  of  bytes to be written. The latter is assumed if more
          than one value argument is given. The count is decimal, and the fol-
          lowing arguments are interpreted as bytes in hexadecimal notation.

          Examples:

          All these examples assume the existence of the file $HOME/.nwclient.
          Otherwise, the server and user would have to be specified.

          nwbpadd -o linus -t 1 -p groups_i\’m_in 030a0002

          In this example, user linus is  added  to  the  group  whose  ID  is
          030a0002. Please note that the ’ has to be quoted.

          nwbpadd -o linus -t 1 -p identification "Linus Torvalds"

          User linus is given his real name :-).

          nwbpadd -o linus -t 1 -p revision -v 04 00 00 01 0b

          A new 4-byte binary value 0x0000010b (hi-lo order, no byte-swapping)
          is added to the "REVISION" property of the user "linus".
