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,

No more VAX hobbyist licenses. Community licenses for Alpha/IA64/X86_64 VMS Software Inc. Commercial VMS software licenses for VAX available from HPE.

Just re-visiting.. No more hobbyist licenses? Is that from vmssoftware.com, no 'community' licenses?

I recall that the disks failed on the public access VMS systems that included Fafner

Anyone know what happened to FAFNER.DYNDS.ORG? I had a hobbyist account here but can longer access the site.

At one time, didn't this web site have a job board? I would love to use my legacy skills one last time in my career.

Eisner, which is currently being moved, got an SSH update and the keys were updated to more modern encryption standards.
