lat-hosts - The lazy administrator's tool to manage hostnames
Creates or deletes hosnames on Mitel's SME servers. This tool is functionally equivalent to the 'Hostnames and addresses' option in the server-manager, but can be run from the command line or called from an other script. It allows you, for example, to create a large number of hostnames in a batch process, or delete hostnames on a remote machine via an ssh console.
See /usr/doc/lazy-admin-tools/example.hosts for the format of the input file.
lat-hosts -a -c ``host| domain| loc. | visib. | loc.ip | glob.ip | mac''
lat-hosts -a -i /path/to/hosts.list
lat-hosts -d [-f] -c ``Host | Domain''
lat-hosts -d [-f] -i /path/to/hosts.list
The following options are supported:
host* : Must contain only letters, numbers, and hyphens, and must start with a letter or number. Wildcards (* and ?) can only be used to delete hostnames. domain : Must be an existing (virtual) domain name. If omitted, the primary site is assumed. loc. : Location of the server: 'Local' (on the LAN) 'Remote' (on the Internet) 'Self' (alias for the SME server) visib. : 'Local' (only visible on the LAN) 'Global' (visible on the entire Internet). loc.ip : Internal IP number glob.ip : Public IP number mac : The ethernet address is optional and causes the DHCP server to statically bind the local IP address to the computer with this ethernet address.
* mandatory field
lat-hosts -a -c ``ntp | hogwarts.net | self | local''
Creates host name 'ntp.hogwarts.net' on the SME server. The host name will be visible only on the LAN.
lat-hosts -a -i /root/hosts.list
Creates the host names defined in /root/hosts.list. Refer to /usr/doc/lazy-admin-tools/example.hosts for an example of an input file.
lat-hosts -d -f -c ``ftp*''
Deletes all host names that start with 'ftp'. The host names will be deleted without prompting (-f).
