SYNOPSIS

rlm_dbm_parser [-c] [-d raddb] [-i inputfile] [-o outputfile] [-x] [-v] [-q] [username ...]

DESCRIPTION

rlm_dbm_parser reads a file of the syntax defined below, and writes a database file usable by rlm_dbm or edits current database.

INPUT FORMAT

rlm_dbm_parser reads a format similar to the one used by the files module. In incomplete RFC2234 ABNF, it looks like this:

entries     = *entry
entry       = identifier TAB definition
identifier  = username / group-name
username    = +PCHAR
groupname   = +PCHAR
definition  = (check-item ",")* LF ( *( reply-item ",") / ";" ) LF
check-item  = AS IN FILES
reply-item  = AS IN FILES
* need definition of username and groupname

As an example, these are the standard files definitions (files module).

DEFAULT   Service-Type == Framed-User
          Framed-IP-Address = 255.255.255.254,
          Framed-MTU = 576,
          Service-Type = Framed-User,
          Fall-Through = Yes

#except who call from number 555-666 DEFAULT Auth-Type := Reject,Service-Type ==Framed-User, Calling-Station-ID == "555-666"

#or call number 555-667 DEFAULT Auth-Type := Reject,Service-Type ==Framed-User, Calling-Station-ID == "555-667"

To be a valid rlm_dbm input file, it should look like this:

DEFAULT   Service-Type == Framed-User                     # (1)
          Framed-IP-Address = 255.255.255.254,            # comma, list cont’d
          Framed-MTU = 576,
          Service-Type = Framed-User,
          Fall-Through =  Yes                             # \n, end of list
          Auth-Type := Reject,Service-Type ==Framed-User, # (2)
          Calling-Station-ID == "555-666"
          ;                                               # ;, no reply items
          Auth-Type := Reject,Service-Type ==Framed-User, # (3)
          Calling-Station-ID == "555-667"
          ;                                               # ditto

This user (the DEFAULT user) contains three entries, 1, 2 and 3. The first entry has a list of reply items, terminated by a reply item without a trailing comma. Entries 2 and 3 has empty reply lists, as indicated by the semicolon. This is necessary to separate an empty line (which is ignored) from the empty list. Definition Fall-Through = Yes used in order to say module to check next record. By default Fall-Through = Yes.

OPTIONS

-d raddb Use raddb as the radiusd configuration directory.
-i inputfile Use file as the input file. If not defined then use standard input.
-o outputfile Use file as the output file.
-c Create a new database (empty output file before writing)
-x Enable debug mode. Multiple x flags increase debug level.
-q Do not print statistics (quiet).
-v Print the version and exit.
-r Remove a username or group name from the database.
