  Index

The mds_install utility is used to create (install) or delete (uninstall) the Module Directory Services database used by CDSA.

This program generally is called by SYS$STARTUP:CDSA$INITIALIZE.COM.

SYNOPSIS

mds_install [[-s source] [-d dbdest]] [-u]

OPTIONS

NOTE: OpenVMS users can specify only the -u option (or no option). However, the other options are described here for completeness for users who are accustomed to seeing them on another platform.
-s source 

Specifies the MDS DLL source location (not used by OpenVMS).

-d dbdest 

Specifies the destination file specification for the MDS database to be created. This parameter is currently hardcoded on OpenVMS, and should not be changed.

-u 

Specifies that the operation is an uninstall of MDS, rather than an install. This parameter cannot be used with the -s and -d parameters.

EXAMPLE

The following command creates an empty CDSA MDS database. (If it is run against an already existing database, it does nothing.)

mds_install
