      set directory - Changes the value of a modifiable, single-valued
      attribute of a directory

      cdscp set directory directory-name attribute-name = attribute-value

		The full name of the directory.

		The name of a particular attribute.  Specify only one
		attribute at a time. See the cds_attributes file for the
		list of attributes and corresponding data types that your
		application uses.

		The value of a particular attribute.  The value of an
		application-defined attribute is dependent on the type of

      The set directory command changes the value of a modifiable, single-
      valued attribute of a directory.	If the attribute does not exist,
      this command creates it.	Usually, this task is performed through the
      client application.  See the OSF DCE Administration Guide for more
      information about attributes.  You can specify an application-defined
      attribute or the following attributes:

      CDS_Convergence = value
		Specifies the degree of consistency among replicas. By
		default, every directory inherits the convergence of its
		parent at creation time. The default setting on the root
		directory is medium. You can define one of the following for

		low	  CDS does not immediately propagate any updates.
			  The next skulk distributes all updates that
			  occurred since the previous skulk. Skulks occur at
			  least once every 24 hours.

		medium	  CDS attempts to immediately propagate an update to
			  all replicas. If the attempt fails, the software
			  lets the next scheduled skulk make the replicas
			  consistent. Skulks occur at least once every 12

		high	  CDS attempts to immediately propagate an update to
			  all replicas. If that attempt fails (for example,
			  if one of the replicas is unavailable), a skulk is
			  scheduled for within one hour. Background skulks
			  occur at least once every 12 hours. Use this
			  setting temporarily and briefly because it uses
			  extensive system resources.

      CDS_UpgradeTo = v.n
		Controls the upgrading of a directory from one version of
		CDS to another. By modifying this attribute, you can
		initiate the upgrading of a directory to a higher version of
		CDS. Specify the value as v.n, where v indicates the major
		version number and n specifies the minor version number.
		There is no default.

    Privilege Required
      You must have write permission to the directory.

      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 sets a low convergence value on the /.:/mfg

      dscp>&gt&gt> set directory /.:/mfg CDS_Convergence = low

      The following commands upgrades the directory version on the /.:/host

      cecp>&gt&gt> directory modify /.:/host -add {CDS_UpgradeTO 1.2} -single
      cecp>&gt&gt> directory synchronize /.:/host

      Commands: create directory(1m), delete directory(1m), list
      directory(1m), remove directory(1m), set directory to skulk(1m), show
