Purpose

The ENABLE command sets a specified flag in the file system to TRUE. This enables certain features of Filer.

Syntax



flag
Specifies the flag that will be set to true. The following flags are available:
  • LOCKING

    When locking is enabled, Filer observes the file system locking protocols, which prevent system hangs and deadlocks. Locking is enabled by default when Filer is started without the -l or -i command-line options.

  • SCRIPT, SCRIPT MODE, and SCRIPTMODE

    Script mode is disabled by default. When script mode is enabled, the Filer ABORT and INQUIRE commands are disabled to allow a script to run without interruption. Script mode should be enabled before running scripts that call Filer.

The following flags are for internal use only, and should not be enabled or disabled:
  • PANIC
  • STOP
  • SUSPEND
  • TPARESET
  • TRACE
