CreateScripts Command Messages

The following messages appear in response to the DATABridge Client createscripts command.

Backing up user scripts to directory "name"

This message indicates that the old user scripts are being copied to the specified directory. Unless inhibited by the command line -n option, user scripts are backed to the “datasourceYYYYMMDD[_HHMISS” subdirectory of the directory whose name is specified by the configuration file parameter user_script_bu_dir. If this parameter is not specified, the directory specified by the parameter user_script_dir is used instead.

Note: You need to periodically delete old copies of these directories as the client does not try to manage the back up user scripts directories.

Begin processing configuration file "name"

This message, which only appears if the -v option is enabled, confirms that the Client is reading the specified text-based configuration file.

Client exit code: dddd[(nnn)] - exit_code_text

This message displays when the command completes. On UNIX, the 8-bit exit code is shown only if it differs from the actual exit code.

Configuration information read from binary file "name"

This message, which only appears if the -v option is enabled, confirms that the Client has successfully read the specified binary configuration file.

Creating DataSet selection script

This message indicates that the program is creating the script “script.user_datasets.source”. This script normally contains data set selection scripts which manipulate the active column in the DATASETS control table.

Creating user define script for DataSet name[/rectype]

This message indicates that the program is creating the script “script.user_define.dataset”, where dataset is the name of the primary table for the specified data set.

Creating user layout alteration script for DataSet name[/rectype]

This message indicates that the program is creating the script “script.user_layout.dataset”, where dataset is the name of the primary table for the specified data set.

End processing configuration file "name"

This message, which only appears if the -v option is enabled, confirms that the Client has processed the specified text-based configuration file.

Loading control tables for datasource

This message indicates that client control tables are being loaded for the data source you specified with the drop or dropall command.

Oracle version: major_vers.minor_vers

This message, which is only written to the log file when using Oracle client, shows the Oracle version.

SQL Server version: major_vers.minor_vers

This message, which is only written to the log file when using the Microsoft SQL Server client, shows the SQL Server version. Note that SQL Server 2000 is version 8, SQL Server 2005 is version 9, SQL Server 2008 is version 10, and SQL Server 2008 R2 is version 10.5.

User scripts for DataSource name written into directory "name"

This message confirms that a fresh copy of the user scripts were written into the specified directory. The client removes all user scripts from the directory after backing them up and recreates all the user scripts.

Note: If you set active to 0 for a data set prior to running the createscripts command, the user scripts for that data set will not be created. You might need to retrieve them from the backup directory if you later change the active column back to 1. Alternatively, you can run the command again with the –n option to prevent a second backup copy from being created.
