Test Driver for Testing LAN Server Lanprobe Interface by Message ID

      Disclosed is a function for testing the IBM OS/2 LAN Server
(LS) LANPROBE internal interface from the command line interface.

     To "naturally" test all aspects of the LANPROBE interface is not
possible for the 3.0 release.   There are currently no users of the
LANPROBE functionality apart from the "migration" interface provided
in conjuction with the NetErrorLogWrite API and the "alert only"
interface provided for the Generic Alerter Service pictured below.
However, the need still exists to perform this verification.

     Tools already exist that will exercise the LS error log and
Generic Alerter service calls shown below.  Other test drivers have
been disclosed to address testing of the I_NetLanProbe interface and
the LANPROBE interface directly.

     The requirement here is to be able to access the LANPROBE
interface as "naturally" as possible through existing tools and to
have the ability to generate all generic alerts that are defined.
This grouping that is made available through this interface allows
access to these tests without having to remember lots of information.

     The intent here is to test all generic alert conditions for the
correct content when seen using NetView or IBM LAN Network Manager.
This information has been documented in external publications.  The
problem here is allowing each generic alert to be generated and then
to pause the testing so that the...
