The Handle System Server distribution also includes a few other small utilities for maintaining a handle server.
DBTool is a graphical utility for operating directly on a handle server's database.
DBTool can be invoked using the command:
If you would like to operate directly on a handle server's database, but without a GUI, there are two other utilities: DBList and DBRemove. DBList will list all the handles in a handle server database. It can be invoked using the command:
DBRemove will remove a specified handle from the database. It can be run using the command:
The Handle System Server distribution includes a simple resolver GUI that may be preferable over the resolution facilities in the Handle Administration Tool. It can be run using the command:
There is also a command line resolver that can be run using the command:
This tool performs client and local/global server diagnostic tests.
This tool is run from the command line and requires certain arguments. The following commands should be run in the same directory as the `handle.jar' file.
Sends a request to each global server and tests each interface. Also pings each server within the site and reports average round trip time and percent packet loss.
Sends a request to server corresponding to specified naming authority and tests each interface. Also pings each server and reports average round trip time and percent packet loss
java -cp handle.jar net.handle.apps.test.Test client <NA>
Tests local server by sending a request to the server and testing each interface.
Tests handle operations: add, add value, modify value, delete value, delete. If `admpriv.bin' is not located in the same directory as `config.dct', user will be prompted for location.
Performs server test, write test, and global sites client test.
The Key Util program allows decrypting and encrypting of private key files. It can be invoked using the command:
GetRootInfo retrieves a current copy of the global service information for the Handle System. This is the information found in the `root_info' file.
GetSiteInfo retrieves the service information for a handle server. This is the information found in the `siteinfo.bin' file.
DoCheckpoint is a command line tool to send a checkpoint/backup command to all of the handle servers in a specified site. Execution is done with the following command:
Keytype can be either PRIVATE or SECRET. If PRIVATE, then key is the name of a file where the private key is stored. If SECRET, then key is the secret key itself.
