B. Note: If packet-pname contains a colon character ( : ), mkorder changes the colon to a period character ( . ) during processing. This change allows packets to be delivered to Windows machines, which do not allow colons in file names.
C. If a packet cannot be delivered, it is sent through the store-and-forward facility to the administrator at the site of the originating replica. A mail message is sent to the store-and-forward administrator. This occurs after repeated attempts to deliver the packet have failed and the allotted time has expired; it can also occur when the destination host is unknown or a data file does not exist. The store-and-forward configuration settings specify the expiration period, the e-mail address of the administrator, and the notification program.
D. The date-time argument can have any of the following formats:
date.time | date | time | now
= day-of-week | long-date time:
= h[h]:m[m][:s[s]] [UTC [ [ + | - ]h[h][:m[m] ] ] ] day-of-week:
= today |yesterday |Sunday | ... |Saturday |Sun | ... |Sat long-date:
= January |... |December |Jan |... |Dec
Specify the time in 24-hour format, relative to the local time zone. If you omit the time, the default value is 00:00:00. If you omit the date, the default value is today. If you omit the century, year, or a specific date, the most recent one is used. Specify UTC if you want the time to be resolved to the same moment in time regardless of time zone. Use the plus (+) or minus (-) operator to specify a positive or negative offset to the UTC time. If you specify UTC without hour or minute offsets, the default setting is Greenwich Mean Time (GMT). (Dates before January 1, 1970 Universal Coordinated Time (UTC) are not valid.)
E. If a failure occurs on a Windows host that does not have e-mail notification enabled, a message appears in the Windows Event Viewer. The message includes the e-mail-address value specified with this option and a note requesting that this user be informed of the status of the operation. For information about enabling e-mail notification, see the MultiSite Control Panel reference page.
F. Specifies the storage class of the packet and shipping order. If you also use –ship or –fship, mkorder looks up the storage class in the shipping.conf file on Linux and the UNIX system or in the MultiSite Control Panel on Windows to determine the location of the storage bay to use. If you omit this option but use –ship or –fship, mkorder places the shipping order in the storage bay location specified for the –default class in the shipping.conf file or the MultiSite Control Panel.
G. Places the shipping order in the specified file instead of in a storage bay. An error occurs if the file already exists
To ship the file immediately use
.../etc/mkorder -fship -data /home/myfile.txt vobserver.sydney
To place a shipping order and the file in the store and forward facility (UNIX: /var/adm/rational/clearcase/shipping/ms_ship/outgoing Windows: xxxxx/shipping/ms_ship/outgoing Windows).
.../etc/mkorder –ship -copy -data /home/myfile.txt vobserver.sydney
If the shipping poll cleartool scheduled task is not running or will not run for sometime then you can use the shipping_server to process the shipping order that has been created for the file.
Create a shipping order for a replica creation packet but place it in the storage bay for a particular storage class. Attempt immediate delivery (–fship), and allow delivery attempts to continue until the beginning of May 18
.../etc/mkorder–data /var/adm/rational/clearcase/shipping/ms_ship/outgoing/repl_samecs_dev –fship –copy –sclass ClassA –pexpire 18-May vobserver.sydney
Shipping order "/var/adm/rational/clearcase/shipping/ms_ship/outgoing/sclass/ClassA/sh_o_to_repl_samecs_dev" generated.
