create link(1m) create link(1m)NAME
create link - Creates a soft link and optionally specifies an expira‐
tion time and an extension time
cdscp create link link-name CDS_LinkTarget = target-name [CDS_LinkTime‐
out = (expiration-time extension-time)]
The full name of the soft link. The full name of the entry to which
the soft link points. A date and time after which CDS checks for exis‐
tence of the soft link's target and either extends or deletes the soft
link. The value is specified as yyyy-mm-dd-hh:mm:ss (year-month-day-
hour:minute:second). You can abbreviate this value. A period of time
by which to extend the soft link's expiration time (if the server has
validated that the target still exists). The value is specified as
ddd-hh:mm:ss (days-hour:minute:second). You can abbreviate ths value.
The create link command creates a soft link. If you specify the
CDS_LinkTimeout attribute, you must specify an expiration time and an
extension time. If you omit the CDS_LinkTimeout attribute, the soft
link is permanent and must be explicitly deleted.
You must have insert permission to the directory in which you intend to
create the soft link.
This command is replaced at Revision 1.1 by the dcecp command and may
not be provided in future releases of DCE.
The following command creates a permanent soft link named
/.:/sales/tokyo/price-server that points to an object entry named
/.:/sales/east/price-server. The expiration value indicates that CDS
will check that the destination name /.:/sales/east/price-server still
exists on June 25,1995, at 12:00 p.m. If the destination name still
exists, the soft link remains in effect another 90 days. Thereafter,
CDS will check that the destination name exists every 90 days. cdscp>
