I would like to hire out a small job in REXX script development.

I need a script that can crawl through a directory tree and search with a specific set of file masks and then launch an external script as a separate task to complete another task. Then return to the calling script and continue the crawl to the end of the tree repeating the search and external script launching. I would like to also have a log created in the base directory that contained the found file masks and the resulting return code after launching the external script.

Please respond initially here to this post if you are interested in this development project. Additional project spec and job cost can be discussed via email.

Thank you for your time and consideration with my request!

Hello Everyone,

I am looking to add an XMPP server / daemon to my eCS server. I want to serve up access to a private Jabber service for my clients for technical support communications.

Any ideas?

TIA,
Todd

Hardware / eCS v2.1 and OS2AHCI.ADD where?
« on: 2012.02.24, 04:51:40 »
Hello All,

I am working on a new platform to be used in my release of a small business server. I understand that in AHCI mode the disc data transfers are much higher than in SATA compatibility mode.

I tried the install of eCS v2.1 with the BIOS setting for AHCI enabled and the AHCI enabled in the custom setup on the eCS installer. The installation of eCS was successful at first, that is what I thought. I found that the OS2AHCI.ADD file was never copied to the boot drive in the C:\OS2\BOOT folder. Actually, I found some AHCI related files within the ECS tree (I am not near that computer and can't remember the specific folder...).

I booted the eCS install CD and found the OS2AHCI.ADD in the root of Z: and copied it to C:\OS2\BOOT. Rebooted and then the system halted looking for an updated DOSCALLS.DLL, I rebooted to the eCS install CD and copied the Z:\DOSCALLS.DLL to the C:\OS2\DLL folder. Rebooted to the installed eCS partition to find another set if issues that I can not remember at this point.

So, what is my path forward to get AHCI functional? Second, is the AHCI speed enough to warrant all this work (I know that I have not spent much time on this yet so I can not complain, really. :-) )?

TIA,
-Todd

P.S. - Another thought. I read in the forums here that there was once a possible issue with AHCI and larger boot drives. I am using a WD 1TB 3½" drive that does not have the 4096 bit sectors. My boot partition is 20GB and no other partitions on the disk yet...

Networking / Looking for a SFTP server for eCS...

Hello All,

I am looking for a SFTP server for eCS. Do we have a commercial or near commercial grade SFTP server for eCS?

TIA,
Todd

Hello All,

I have an eCS test PC that I have used for simple testing with SAMBA over the last several years. I am now ready to try the current releases of SERVER and CLIENT. I would like to have a completely clean slate before I start. What is my path forward for ensuring that I have a totally clean eCS PC before I try SAMBA again?

TIA,
Todd

Hi everyone,

I am setting up a test headless eComstation v2 system. Ultimately this will be a standalone system in a closet. I installed and configured eCS v2 with no more than a few minor issues. eCS then boot properly and I have configured everything I need for the evaluation. I then remove the keyboard / mouse / monitor and started the system. Waited approximately 5 minutes and then re-connected the monitor to see the status. A blue screen with a mouse pointer in the middle just stayed there like it was idle, but without WPS starting completely. Just the blue screen with the mouse in the middle. I powered off the system and connected the mouse and keyboard again. The eCS system came up ran the required chkdsk for the required partitions and rested at WPS fully functional. I can duplicate the matter over and over.

More testing, I changed the JFS drive letters to none to reduce startup time when chkdsk had to run after a non-proper shutdown, also c: is the boot and is HPFS, I tried various configurations of using SNAP / Panorama / GRADD with usb kb/mouse and PS/2 Keyboard and the only consistency was the connection of the PS/2 keyboard.

Now another test. I commented out the protshell=c:\os2\pmshell.exe and used protshell=c:\os2\cmd.exe for testing. Started the system in all the above listed configurations and everytime the system came up properly to a full and stable WPS desktop. I did not connect the PS/2 kb or in other test instances the USB kb/mouse. At the command prompt I would then plug in the PS/2 kb or USB kb/mouse and then run pmshell.ee fron the c:\os2 prompt and WPS worked everytime... Make sense?? I feel like I am rattling on...

Thank you,

Applications / virtualbox for eCS...
« on: 2011.05.31, 05:30:15 »
Hi All,

Who do I talk to for information to use eCS as a host for virtualbox.  I know that we have the ports from Paul from a long time ago (I appreciated GREATLY all that Paul does!). I do not need the latest and greatest.  I do not need serial / parallel / usb.  I need multiple guest capabilities to run at least two WinXP/7 sessions.  I need to use nearly 3 gig of RAM for those sessions. And of course I need it to be stable.

I am trying to develop my next small office server series for my professional client base.  I want eCS to be my host.  I wanted Samba/2 to be my file server but I can not make it run stable enough for my expected commercial implementation.  Therefore, all I can do is run XP Pro / 7 Pro for the line of business apps that need the file server functionality.

I really do want to make this work! I want to again have an OS/2 - eCS based solution that I can offer to my commercial clients.  eCS will at least have licensed seats and the revenue from such that will in turn support more development by Mensys.

I need a path forward!

Thank you,
-Todd

Hi All,

I am looking to build a multi-site server platform.  One of my goals is to be able to support my own tech services to download support files at client sites.  From time to time I find myself needing large files that I need to spend an extended period of time just waiting for the download to complete.  Time better used elsewhere if I could only download the files more quickly.

Does anyone have suggestions for the server/daemon based technologies?  A torrent server would be an option, but I have not found an eCS / OS2 server/daemon.  I could use ftp, but I need to support segmented downloads from multiple locations to a ftp client.  Now that I am thinking about it, a ftp server that supports download resuming would support segmented downloads. Right?

Any help would be greatly appreciated...

TIA,
-Todd

Hi All,

I have this new netbook. Overall the netbook works GREAT!  Both Panarama and SNAP work but I can not get to the resolutions that I really want and know I can get with other operating systems... I have observed this widescreen 0.74 information in other searches, but have not found the actual widescreen driver or tool...

Where do I go?

TIA,
-Todd

Hi,

I have been testing eCS v2.0 on various platforms that all use the AMD processors.  I have realized that the disk throughput seems to be very slow compared to the nearly identical config with eCS v1.2MR. Any ideas?

TIA,

Hardware / eCS v2GA - Questions for hibernating the OS...
« on: 2011.01.28, 23:49:32 »
Hello,

I have a NetBook that I have successfully installed eCS v2.0GA upon. I use VPC/2 for my must have Windows sessions.  I want to used hibernating for eCS v2.0GA.  My install disk is HPFS and secondary partitions using JFS. I can setup a dedicated FAT partition for the old way of hibernating if needed.

TIA,

Hi All,

I hope everybody had a good holiday!  Mine was blessed with family and friends... :-)

I am working a a netbook project.  The netbook had a Realtek GBE RTL8167 at 10/100/1000 and a Ralink Tech RT3900E_C2 wireless adapter at 802.11bgn.

Used GenMac v2.20 and it found both macs and identified the Realtek RTL8167 as an RTL8168 and the second was recognized but had no association of a supported mac/NIC.  So I used the RTL8168 recommended. I then rebooted and was up to the familiar DHCP IP address request that eventually time out. The Workplace Shell started and then turned on the DHCP monitor to check the obtained address. The DHCP monitor never acquired an a
ddress.  I then tested another box on the router that had the DHCP server turned on and the box received a proper IP and pings were used to verify the configuration. I then set the eCS v2.0GA with the GenMac RTL8168 to a static address that was in the range of the router that had the DHCP server.  I could ping the router and other addresses on that router. I could use firefox to bring up the webadmin of the router.  I tried DHCP config on the TCPIP configuration utillity again and rebooted.  Still no address during boot or after Workplace Shell started.

I need DHCP for this.  I need this netbook to be operational soon. I really want to use this technology with the VirtualPC and use it for my mobile development platform. Does anybody have a solution for me. I would actually prefer to use the Ralink Tech wireless. I have downloaded the latest GenMac and tested that specifically with no recognition either with the Ralink Tech mac.

If someone proposed to me the development of the Ralink Tech RT3900E_C2 and/or the Realtek RTL 8167 as a GenMac or a hybrid driver, I would be thrilled!

TIA,
-Todd

Hi All,

I need to find a simple Scheduler for eCS v2.0 GA.  The one in eCS v1.2 is exactly what I need, but Roderick told me many months ago that we were not going to be able to have that in eCS v2.x...

Any ideas?

TIA,
