Hi all,
I'm having issues with adding/creating a new user on my hobbyist system running OpenVMS VAX 7.1
I've tried adding a new user using the UAF utility (mc authorize) as well as with the ADDUSER.COM DCL procedure.
The new user can be found in the UAF:
Username: VMSUSER Owner: VMS USER
Account: UIC: [201,2] ([VMSUSER,VMSUSER01])
CLI: DCL Tables: DCLTABLES
Default: SYS$SYSDEVICE:<DECVAX.VMSUSER>
LGICMD: LOGIN.COM
Flags:
Primary days: Mon Tue Wed Thu Fri
Secondary days: Sat Sun
No access restrictions
Expiration: (none) Pwdminimum: 6 Login Fails: 0
Pwdlifetime: 90 00:00 Pwdchange: (pre-expired)
Last Login: (none) (interactive), (none) (non-interactive)
Maxjobs: 0 Fillm: 300 Bytlm: 32768
Maxacctjobs: 0 Shrfillm: 0 Pbytlm: 0
Maxdetach: 0 BIOlm: 40 JTquota: 4096
Prclm: 2 DIOlm: 40 WSdef: 256
Prio: 4 ASTlm: 40 WSquo: 512
Queprio: 4 TQElm: 40 WSextent: 1024
CPU: (none) Enqlm: 200 Pgflquo: 32768
Authorized Privileges:
NETMBX TMPMBX
Default Privileges:
NETMBX TMPMBX
UAF>



...but when I try to login with this new user, I keep getting an OPCOM message like following:
%%%%%%%%%%% OPCOM 4-NOV-2010 22:08:33.79 %%%%%%%%%%%
Message from user AUDIT$SERVER on DECVAX
Security alarm (SECURITY) and security audit (SECURITY) on DECVAX, system id: 30
300
Auditable event: Remote interactive login failure
Event time: 4-NOV-2010 22:08:33.78
PID: 00000215
Process name: _TNA5:
Username: <login>
Terminal name: TNA5:, _TNA5:, -deleted my ip-
Status: %LOGIN-F-NOSUCHUSER, no such user




Am I missing something important? Hope you can help me to solve this issue.

Best regards

Could you provide a screen shot of the actual login session?

$help/message nosuchuser reveals:

NOSUCHUSER, no such user

Facility: LOGIN, Login Procedure

Explanation: The specified user name does not exist. This message is
written to the system accounting and security audit records;
the NOTVALID message displays to the user.

User Action: None.

A possible cause: Your UAF and the one that LOGIN uses are not the same. LOGIN by default uses the file SYS$SYSTEM:SYSUAF.DAT (if the logical SYSUAF isn't defined), while AUTHORIZE works on the file SYS$DISK:[]SYSUAF.DAT. So one must always remember to SET DEFAULT SYS$SYSTEM: before running AUTHORIZE.

Now, if the logical SYSUAF is defined, it has to be defined /SYSTEM/EXEC for LOGIN and AUTHORIZE to use the same file.

Hi brad,
it's not 100% clear for me, what you do mean.
The actual login session was the one where I was logged on as SYSTEM, but which screen exactly?

Hi Martin,
excellent! Very good explanation/instruction. Following it I could add a new user immediately. Worked like a charm. Thanks a lot!

Kind regards,

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.

lation/ For the most part just use VMS 6.1 media instead of 7.3. But why run the older release?
