I'd like to add a new user on my system
alpha (the user) should have his "home dir" as
dka1500:[users.alpha]

according to the manual:
$ SET DEFAULT SYS$SYSTEM
$ RUN AUTHORIZE
UAF>
# Use the AUTHORIZE command ADD to specify attributes in the UAF fields as shown in the following example:

UAF> ADD JONES/PASSWORD=LPB57WM/UIC=[014,1] -
_UAF> /DEVICE=DISK$USER/DIRECTORY=[JONES] -
_UAF> /LGICMD=DISK$USER:[NEWPROD]GRPLOGIN -
_UAF> /OWNER="ROBERT JONES"/ACCOUNT=DOC

but to me is not clear what DISK$USER should be

on my system disk is dka1500

if i set
add alpha/password=temp/owner="alpha user"/DEVICE=dka1500/DIRECTORY=[us
ers.alpha]/uic=[200,224]/flag=nodisuser


as I login as alpha , the sh def says
DKA1500:[USERS.ALPHA]
%DCL-I-INVDEF, dka1500:[users.alpha] does not exist

what am I doing in the wrong way? smiley

mmmh... *maybe* my error was not creating the dir
I thought were "automatically" created

after ( as system)

crea/dir dka1500:[users.alpha]
set dir/owner=alpha DKA1500:[users.alpha]

r authorize
modify alpha /DEVICE=dka1500/DIRECTORY=[USERS.alpha]

lo & login as alpha


sh def
DKA1500:[USERS.ALPHA]
$


I *hope* was the right way to do it smiley

Yepp. The directory must be created by hand (as well as e.g. copy a LOGIN.COM to it).

To ease things, there's a procedure SYS$EXAMPLES:ADDUSER.COM that does create the directory.

Eisner was upgraded to the current Multinet Release. As part of that a new host key was generated. The old key was incompatible with newer Linux.

ssh to eisner is now giving (on linux) "WARNING: REMOTE HOST IDENTIFICATION HAS CHANGED!" , Has the server key in fact changed ?

HPE only makes the most current version of OpenVMS Alpha / IA64 /VAX available to hobbyists. When I had access to the Alliance 1 program it was the same. No public downloads are allowed by HPE.
