Updates IFIL Filenames for redirection to alternate locations.
The Redirect feature is used to allow a file originating in one directory structure to be repositioned into another directory location following autorecovery, dynamic dump restore, or replication. As a result, if the IFIL resource of the file contained a path, this path would be incorrect after the file was redirected to the new location. To support copying c-tree files from one directory location to another (on the same system or on a different system) and accessing them in their new location, it is necessary to update any filename paths in a c-tree data file's IFIL resource.
ctredirect is used to update the file names contained in the IFIL resource of the specified files. ctredirect accepts as command-line options the name of a text file containing the list of files whose IFIL resources are to be updated and the name of a text file containing the filename redirection rules.
A comment may be placed in the redirection rules file by starting the line with a semi-colon (;).
Note: The rules must match the path in the IFIL resource, which may differ from the path used to open the file. The rules must precisely match the path in the IFIL resource, which may differ from the path used to open the file, therefore you may not use wild cards.
ctredirect -f <filenamelist> -r <redirectlist> -n <sect>
Consider the current directory contains the data files customer.dat and inventory.dat, and their IFIL resources specify the path /export/home/users/marketing/data for the data and index files.
The current directory contains the file myfiles.txt listing the following file names:
The current directory also contains the file myrules.txt containing the following redirection rules:
ctredirect is then called to change the paths in the IFIL resource of these two data files:
./ctredirect -f myfiles.txt -r myrules.txt
Updating the file paths in the IFIL resources of the specified files...
[ OK ] customer.dat
[ OK ] inventory.dat
Successfully changed IFIL resource for all specified files
