Novell NetWare Revisor 3.4
"Novell NetWare Revisor is an indispensable assistant for the administrator of a NetWare network allowing him to create the images of the Bindery and Directory Tree databases from a Windows workstation, remotely control the state of servers, monitor network connections, track and release occupied file resources, create reports, recover the file structure and access rights, send messages to users, perform console server commands and much more.
Novell NetWare Revisor can copy the flat Bindery database (for NetWare 3.x) or the Directory Tree database (for NetWare 4.x and higher) to its local storage. This copy (or image) will contain the most widely used objects (containers, groups, users), their attributes (names, descriptions, phone numbers, etc.), their relative location in the tree, their membership in groups, the entire file structure of the server and the access rights of each object for file resources. Owing to this feature and also to the built-in tools for viewing and editing the image, you will be able to easily find information about this or that server object, even without being connected to the network. You will not have to log in to the server and launch, for instance, the nwadmin utility to be able to get information about a user’s trustee rights for some folder. All that you will need is to have a fresh copy of the server that Novell NetWare Revisor creates in no time.
If you want to print out the object tree of your server, Novell NetWare Revisor will help you with this too. The program has a built-in visual report editor where you will be able to build a report of any complexity: from a simple object listing (a table where all usernames, groups, etc. are enumerated) to a multilevel report with the full description of properties of each object in the tree (attributes, location, membership, trustee rights, etc.). Novell NetWare Revisor already includes a basic set of profiles for creating full-featured reports and that is why you will not even have to build your own report when you just familiarize yourself with the program. The program creates reports based on the created server image and saves them in the HTML format that can be viewed in any Internet browser.
The features of the program connected with using the server image do not come down to viewing the object tree and creating reports offline. Novell NetWare Revisor will help you completely or partially recover the file structure of the server and the access rights of users, groups and containers for files and folders. Just imagine what kind of boring work the administrator will have to do in order to recover the old system of trustee right distribution on one or several volumes after the hard drive of the server goes down or the server is reinstalled. Even if the administrator will be recovering access rights not from memory, but using schemes compiled and printed out beforehand, the procedure may take a rather long time. However, our experience shows that the server always goes down unexpectedly and exactly at the moment when the company’s staff urgently needs it for their work. You do not have to be an economist to count the losses that company may suffer due to its server being down for a long time. Novell NetWare Revisor will considerably reduce these losses thanks to its built-in feature of recovering the file structure and access rights on the server. The program will recover the entire information in several seconds and thus save your time and money. Novell NetWare Revisor will also allow you to monitor the users who are connected to the server. The program will show the complete list of connections, users and occupied file resources. It will allow you to evaluate the overall load on the server. You will easily find out the number of connections allocated to one user and get the list of files he or she is currently using. The program can disconnect one or several users at once if it is launched under the administrator account. If you need to release a certain file, Novell NetWare Revisor will disconnect only those connections that block this file."
