[hobbit] hobbit, file and bbwin question

There were some issues with bbwin .11 in this respect.  BBWin .12 is currently available and I believe there were some patches applied to make this work...Etienne can speak to that better than I.

I too have never been able to get this to work.  The BBWin 0.11 release notes say it is supposed to, but I've had no luck.  My clientlocal.cfg and hobbit-client.cfg look similar to yours.  I've tried slashes, doublebackslashes, quotes, etc but it always shows up as "no files monitored".

It sounds like you are one step ahead of me since your clientlocal.cfg is actually being downloaded.  Mine is 1 byte on the client.

If anyone has this working, would you mind posting client-local.cfg and hobbit-client.cfg snips?

Is anyone in the hobbit world using BBWin in central mode to monitor the
status of a file on the Window side and reporting back to a UNIX hobbit
server? If so I could really use your help.


Hostname:       mailrelay.math.purdue.edu
OS:     Microsoft Windows Server 2003, Standard Edition Service Pack 2
(build 3790)
BBWin: BBWin V.12

Hostname:       zorn.math.purdue.edu
OS:     SunOS zorn.math.purdue.edu 5.10 Generic_120011-14 sun4u sparc

On the server I have the following two files




                UP 30m
                LOAD 40.0 70.0
                DISK    * 90 95
                FILE c:\testbbwin red MTIME<600

On the BBwin client my clientlocal.cfg file has


file:c:\testbbwin does not seem to add any information in the
msg.mailrelay file.


I do get any information in the msg.mailrelay file about the
file:c:\testbbwin. Is the code built in BBWin to capture the file:
information to add to the msg.mailrelay file or is this something that I
have to write?

Can you provide your files so I can see an example.

I really need to monitor a file on the Window side and this would be a great

I also I am not a window type guy. We run as few window machines as possible
and only where necessary.
