Why can I not retreive user variables with adduser on Unix?
I have been trying to use the "adduser ge" function to find the value of variables in GMS under UNIX, however all variables return as 0.
The problem arises because of a difference between DOS and UNIX shells.
All backslashes () must be escaped in a UNIX shell.
The correct syntax to set a system variable on UNIX is:
adduser se username password \testcount 20
The correct syntax to get a domain variable on UNIX is:
adduser ge username password domainuservariable.
The escaping of backslashes () is not required in interactive or batch modes because the input does not go through the shell.
NB: "username" and "password" must be replaced with the fully qualified username and password of a user with administrator rights on the server.
