WARNING: This documentation covers Parallels H-Sphere versions up to 3.1. For the latest up-to-date Parallels H-Sphere documentation, please proceed to the
official Parallels site.
This document explains how to maintain HShome directory on Winbox and
to clean it from orphaned/redundant folders and files.
Orphaned user files are redundant files that remain after deleting H-Sphere users from database.
HShome maintenance is performed with help of hshome_cleanup.js script which also
informs you of missing user home folders if they are not found.
To clean HShome from orphaned files:
- Download and unpack hshome_cleanup script.
- Run the script:
cscript hshome_cleanup.js <userslistfile> <hshome_path> <orphaned_path> [/f]
cscript - script interpreter
<userslistfile> - file with hsphere users list; usernames delimeted by CRLF.
Obtain it by running the following query:
select login from unix_user where hostid=N; [where N is logical server ID]
<hshome_path> - location of HShome
<orphaned_path> - path to the existing folder where redundant files/folders will be moved.
[/f]: with this option files won't be moved at "hshome" root.
As an example, you will run something like:
cscript hshome_cleanup.js users.txt d:\hshome d:\hsorphaned
As the result, all orphaned files will be moved to the specified directory.
Here is an example of script execution:
E:\>cscript hshome_cleanup.js users.txt e:\hshome e:\hsorphaned

HSHome location: e:\hshome
Orphaned location: E:\hsorphaned\
