select_dz_command command to retrieve a UNIX command in the currently selected zone from Active Directory. This command stores the selected UNIX command in memory, and makes it the currently selected UNIX command for subsequent ADEdit commands. The UNIX command remains selected until you select another UNIX command or zone, delete the UNIX command, or end the ADEdit session.
If you use ADEdit commands such as
set_dzc_field to change settings for the selected UNIX command, you must save the selected UNIX command using the
save_dz_command command for your changes to take effect in Active Directory. If you select another UNIX command or end the ADEdit session before saving the currently selected UNIX command, your changes will be lost.
You can only use the
select_dz_command command to select UNIX commands if the currently selected zone is a classic4 or hierarchical zone. The command does not work for other types of zones.
Classic and hierarchical
This command takes no options.
This command takes the following arguments:
Required. Specifies the name of the UNIX command to select.
This command returns nothing if it runs successfully.
This example looks for the UNIX command named “account_manager” in the current zone and, if found, selects it as the current UNIX command.
Before you use this command, you must have a currently selected zone stored in memory. The following commands enable you to view and select a UNIX command to work with:
- get_dz_commands returns a Tcl list of UNIX commands in the current zone.
- list_dz_commands lists to
stdoutthe UNIX commands in the current zone.
- new_dz_command creates a new UNIX command and stores it in memory.
After you have a UNIX command stored in memory, you can use the following commands to work with that command:
- delete_dz_command deletes the selected command from Active Directory and from memory.
- get_dzc_field reads a field value from the currently selected command.
- save_dz_command saves the selected command with its current settings to Active Directory.
- set_dzc_field sets a field value in the currently selected command.
