HP OpenVMS System Management Utilities Reference Manual
When you modify a password, the new password expires automatically; it is valid only once (unless you specify /NOPWDEXPIRED). On login, users are forced to change their passwords (unless you specify /FLAGS=DISFORCE_PWD_CHANGE).
Note that the /GENERATE_PASSWORD and /PASSWORD qualifiers are mutually exclusive.
/IDENTIFIERAdds an identifier to the rights database, RIGHTSLIST.DAT. The ADD/IDENTIFIER command does not add a user account to the authorization file, SYSUAF.
The ADD/ADD_IDENTIFIER command, however, adds a user account to the authorization file, SYSUAF, and also adds an identifier to the rights database, RIGHTSLIST.DAT.)
/NOINTERACTIVESpecifies the hours of access for interactive logins. For a description of the range specification, see the /ACCESS qualifier. By default, there are no access restrictions on interactive logins.
/JTQUOTA=valueSpecifies the initial byte quota with which the jobwide logical name table is to be created. By default, the value is 4096 on VAX systems and 4096 on Alpha and I64 systems.
/LGICMD=filespecSpecifies the name of the default login command file. The file name defaults to the device specified for /DEVICE, the directory specified for /DIRECTORY, a file name of LOGIN, and a file type of .COM. If you select the defaults for all these values, the file name is SYS$SYSTEM:[USER]LOGIN.COM.
/LOCAL[=(range[,...])]Specifies hours of access for interactive logins from local terminals. For a description of the range specification, see the /ACCESS qualifier. By default, there are no access restrictions on local logins.
/MAXACCTJOBS=valueSpecifies the maximum number of batch, interactive, and detached processes that can be active at one time for all users of the same account. By default, a user has a maximum of 0, which represents an unlimited number.
/MAXDETACH=valueSpecifies the maximum number of detached processes with the cited user name that can be active at one time. To prevent the user from creating detached processes, specify the keyword NONE. By default, a user has a value of 0, which represents an unlimited number.
/MAXJOBS=valueSpecifies the maximum number of processes (interactive, batch, detached, and network) with the cited user name that can be active simultaneously. The first four network jobs are not counted. By default, a user has a maximum value of 0, which represents an unlimited number.
/NOMODIFY_IDENTIFIERSpecifies whether the identifier associated with the user is to be modified in the rights database. This qualifier applies only when you modify the UIC or user name in the UAF record. By default, the associated identifiers are modified.
/NETWORK[=(range[,...])]Specifies hours of access for network batch jobs. For a description of how to specify the range, see the /ACCESS qualifier. By default, network logins have no access restrictions.
/OWNER=owner-nameSpecifies the name of the owner of the account. You can use this name for billing purposes or similar applications. The owner name is 1 to 31 characters. No default owner name exists.
/NOPASSWORDSpecifies up to two passwords for login. Passwords can be from 0 to 32 alphanumeric characters in length. The dollar sign ($) and underscore (_) are also permitted.
Uppercase and lowercase characters are equivalent. All lowercase characters are converted to uppercase before the password is encrypted. Avoid using the word password as the actual password.
Use the /PASSWORD qualifier as follows:
When you modify a password, the new password expires automatically; it is valid only once (unless you specify /NOPWDEXPIRED). On login, the user is forced to change the password (unless you specify /FLAGS=DISFORCE_PWD_CHANGE).
Note that the /GENERATE_PASSWORD and /PASSWORD qualifiers are mutually exclusive.
/PBYTLMThis flag is reserved for HP.
/PGFLQUOTA=valueSpecifies the paging file limit. This is the maximum number of pages that the person's process can use in the system paging file. By default, the value is 32768 pages on VAX systems and 256,000 pagelets on Alpha and I64 systems.
If decompressing libraries, make sure to set PGFLQUOTA to twice the size of the library.
/PRCLM=valueSpecifies the subprocess creation limit. This is the maximum number of subprocesses that can exist at one time for the specified user's process. By default, the value is 2 on VAX systems and 8 on Alpha and I64 systems.
/PRIMEDAYS=([NO]day[,...])Defines the primary and secondary days of the week for logging in. Specify the days as a list separated by commas, and enclose the list in parentheses. To specify a secondary day, prefix the day with NO (for example, NOFRIDAY). To specify a primary day, omit the NO prefix.
By default, primary days are Monday through Friday and secondary days are Saturday and Sunday. If you omit a day from the list, AUTHORIZE uses the default value. (For example, if you omit Monday from the list, AUTHORIZE defines Monday as a primary day.)
Use the primary and secondary day definitions in conjunction with such qualifiers as /ACCESS, /INTERACTIVE, and /BATCH.
/PRIORITY=valueSpecifies the default base priority. The value is an integer in the range of 0 to 31 on VAX systems and 0 to 63 on Alpha and I64 systems. By default, the value is set to 4 for timesharing users.
/PRIVILEGES=([NO]privname[,...])Specifies which privileges the user is authorized to hold, although these privileges are not necessarily enabled at login. (The /DEFPRIVILEGES qualifier determines which ones are enabled.) A NO prefix removes the privilege from the user. The keyword NOALL disables all user privileges. Many privileges have varying degrees of power and potential system impact (see the HP OpenVMS Guide to System Security for a detailed discussion). By default, a user holds TMPMBX and NETMBX privileges. Privname is the name of the privilege.
/NOPWDEXPIREDSpecifies the password is valid for only one login. A user must change a password immediately after login or be locked out of the system. The system warns users of password expiration. A user can either specify a new password, with the DCL command SET PASSWORD, or wait until expiration and be forced to change. By default, a user must change a password when first logging in to an account. The default is applied to the account only when the password is being modified.
/NOPWDLIFETIMESpecifies the length of time a password is valid. Specify a delta time value in the form [dddd-] [hh:mm:ss.cc]. For example, for a lifetime of 120 days, 0 hours, and 0 seconds, specify /PWDLIFETIME="120-". For a lifetime of 120 days 12 hours, 30 minutes and 30 seconds, specify /PWDLIFETIME="120-12:30:30". If a period longer than the specified time elapses before the user logs in, the system displays a warning message. The password is marked as expired.
To prevent a password from expiring, specify the time as NONE. By default, a password expires in 90 days.
/PWDMINIMUM=valueSpecifies the minimum password length in characters. Note that this value is enforced only by the DCL command SET PASSWORD. It does not prevent you from entering a password shorter than the minimum length when you use AUTHORIZE to create or modify an account. By default, a password must have at least 6 characters. The value specified by the /PWDMINIMUM qualifier conflicts with the value used by the /GENERATE_PASSWORD qualifier or the DCL command SET PASSWORD/GENERATE, the operating system chooses the lesser value. The maximum value for generated passwords is 10.
/QUEPRIO=valueReserved for future use.
/REMOTE[=(range[,...])]Specifies hours during which access is permitted for interactive logins from network remote terminals (with the DCL command SET HOST). For a description of the range specification, see the /ACCESS qualifier. By default, remote logins have no access restrictions.
/SHRFILLM=valueSpecifies the maximum number of shared files that the user can have open at one time. By default, the system assigns a value of 0, which represents an infinite number.
/TQELMSpecifies the total number of entries in the timer queue plus the number of temporary common event flag clusters that the user can have at one time. By default, a user can have 100.
/UIC=valueSpecifies the user identification code (UIC). The UIC value is a group number in the range from 1 to 37776 (octal) and a member number in the range from 0 to 177776 (octal), which are separated by a comma and enclosed in brackets. HP reserves group 1 and groups 300--377 for its own use.
Each user must have a unique UIC. By default, the UIC value is [200,200].
/WSDEFAULT=valueSpecifies the default working set limit. This represents the initial limit to the number of physical pages the process can use. (The user can alter the default quantity up to WSQUOTA with the DCL command SET WORKING_SET.) By default, a user has 256 pages on VAX systems and 4096 pagelets on Alpha and I64 systems.
The value cannot be greater than WSMAX. This quota value replaces smaller values of PQL_MWSDEFAULT.
/WSEXTENT=valueSpecifies the working set maximum. This represents the maximum amount of physical memory allowed to the process. The system provides memory to a process beyond its working set quota only when it has excess free pages. The additional memory is recalled by the system if needed.
The value is an integer equal to or greater than WSQUOTA. By default, the value is 1024 pages on VAX systems and 16384 pagelets on Alpha and I64 systems. The value cannot be greater than WSMAX. This quota value replaces smaller values of PQL_MWSEXTENT.
/WSQUOTA=valueSpecifies the working set quota. This is the maximum amount of physical memory a user process can lock into its working set. It also represents the maximum amount of swap space that the system reserves for this process and the maximum amount of physical memory that the system allows the process to consume if the systemwide memory demand is significant.
The value cannot be greater than the value of WSMAX and cannot exceed 8,192 pagelets on Alpha and I64 systems. This quota value replaces smaller values of PQL_MWSQUOTA.
Modify the DEFAULT record when qualifiers normally assigned to a new user differ from the HP-supplied values. The following qualifiers correspond to fields in the default record that are commonly modified:
Enables you to exit from AUTHORIZE and return to DCL command level. You can also return to command level by pressing Ctrl/Z.
Assigns the specified identifier to the user and documents the user as a holder of the identifier in the rights database.
GRANT/IDENTIFIER id-name user-spec
Displays information concerning the use of AUTHORIZE, including formats and explanations of commands, parameters, and qualifiers.
If you do not specify a keyword, HELP displays information about the topics and commands for which help is available. It then prompts you with "Topic?". You can supply a topic or a command name, or press Return. When you specify a command name and qualifiers, you get detailed information about that command. If you respond by pressing Return, you exit from help. You can also exit from help by pressing Ctrl/Z.
UAF> HELP ADD
The HELP command in this example displays information about the ADD command:
ADD Adds a user record to the SYSUAF and corresponding identifiers to the rights database. Format ADD newusername Additional information available: Parameter Qualifiers /ACCESS /ACCOUNT /ADD_IDENTIFIER /ALGORITHM /ASTLM /BATCH /BIOLM /BYTLM /CLI /CLITABLES /CPUTIME /DEFPRIVILEGES /DEVICE /DIALUP /DIOLM /DIRECTORY /ENQLM /EXPIRATION /FILLM /FLAGS /GENERATE_PASSWORD /INTERACTIVE /JTQUOTA /LGICMD /LOCAL /MAXACCTJOBS /MAXDETACH /MAXJOBS /NETWORK /OWNER /PASSWORD /PBYTLM /PGFLQUOTA /PRCLM /PRIMEDAYS /PRIORITY /PRIVILEGES /PWDEXPIRED /PWDLIFETIME /PWDMINIMUM /REMOTE /SHRFILLM /TQELM /UIC /WSDEFAULT /WSEXTENT /WSQUOTA Examples /IDENTIFIER /PROXY ADD Subtopic?
UAF> HELP ADD/ACCOUNT
The command in this example displays information about the /ACCOUNT qualifier:
ADD /ACCOUNT=account-name Specifies the default name for the account (for example, a billing name or number). The name can be a string of 1 to 8 alphanumeric characters. By default, AUTHORIZE does not assign an account name.
Writes reports for selected UAF records to a listing file, SYSUAF.LIS, which is placed in the current default directory.
LIST/IDENTIFIER, LIST/PROXY, and LIST/RIGHTS are documented as separate commands.
user-specSpecifies the user name or UIC of the requested UAF record. Without the user-spec parameter, AUTHORIZE lists the user records of all users. The asterisk (*) and percent sign (%) wildcards are permitted in the user name.
/BRIEFSpecifies that a brief report be written to SYSUAF.LIS. The /BRIEF qualifier is the default qualifier. SYSUAF.LIS is placed in the default directory.
/FULLSpecifies that a full report be written to SYSUAF.LIS, including identifiers held by the user. SYSUAF.LIS is placed in the SYS$SYSTEM directory.
The LIST command creates a listing file of reports for selected UAF records. Print the listing file, SYSUAF.LIS, with the DCL command PRINT.
Specification of a user name results in a single-user report. Specification of the asterisk wildcard character following the LIST command results in reports for all users in ascending sequence by user name. Specification of a UIC results in reports for all users with that UIC. (HP recommends that you assign each user a unique UIC, but if users share a UIC, the report will show all users with that UIC.) You can use the asterisk wildcard character to specify the UIC.
The following table shows how to specify a UIC with the LIST command and use the asterisk wildcard character with the UIC specification to produce various types of reports:
Command Description LIST [14,6] Lists a full report for the user (or users) with member number 6 in group 14. LIST [14,*] /BRIEF Lists a brief report for all users in group 14, in ascending sequence by member number. LIST [*,6] /BRIEF Lists a brief report for all users with a member number of 6. LIST [*,*] /BRIEF Lists a brief report for all users, in ascending sequence by UIC.
Although you must provide separate UICs for each user, the LIST command reports users with the same UIC in the order in which they were added to the SYSUAF. Full reports list the details of the limits, privileges, login flags, and command interpreter. Brief reports do not include the limits, login flags, or command interpreter, nor do they summarize the privileges. AUTHORIZE never displays the password for an account.
See the SHOW command for examples of brief and full reports.
UAF> LIST ROBIN/FULL %UAF-I-LSTMSG1, writing listing file %UAF-I-LSTMSG2, listing file SYSUAF.LIS complete
This command lists a full report for the user record ROBIN.
UAF> LIST * %UAF-I-LSTMSG1, writing listing file %UAF-I-LSTMSG2, listing file SYSUAF.LIS complete
This command results in brief reports for all users in ascending sequence by user name. Note, however, that this is the same result you would produce had you omitted the asterisk wildcard.
UAF> LIST [300,*] %UAF-I-LSTMSG1, writing listing file %UAF-I-LSTMSG2, listing file SYSUAF.LIS complete
This command lists a brief report for all user records with a group UIC of 300.
