Thread: nlist.exe that's not memory limited

    nlist.exe that's not memory limited

    Running NW6.5.6

    I have a dos script that I use to produce a simple edirectory user list
    from a batch file. Our tree has gotten so large that NLIST now fails
    due to lack of memory.

    Has anyone out there come up with a non-memory-limited NLIST equivalent
    that I can run from a DOS prompt that would give me the same info as
    NLIST /s /r /c -- hopefully in the same format so I wouldn't have to
    modify my data-parsing subroutine very much! :)

    Tried the option not to sort the results?

    Well I must admit defeat! I've looked all through the online
    documentation and can't find an option to not sort the results. Do you
    know it off the top of your head? thanks!

    Perhaps it was NDIR that had that option.. Anyway.. HAve you tried
    Wolfgang Schreiber's Free NDSReport?

    <g>, yep it is. I'd second Wolfgang's DSReport as the way to go though

    Cheers Dave

    Wolfgang's DSReport is a great tool (I've used it before) but I need
    something that I can run from DOS that will plug into my existing batch
    files.

    Run it a few times from different contexts rather than once from root, and
    just append to the output file ?

    Cheers Dave

    Hey, that's a thought. I'll try that.

    That worked. Thanks! (I'm actually kinda embarrassed I didn't think of
    that myself)
