The Question is:
I tried to modify a users file and I could not find the user. As a matter of
fact I could not find any user except system and default. I knew there were
users on there though, because people would log on to this machine. I found
out by asking around that
the systems administrator before I used: @sys$examples:adduser to add new
users. I found the users directory and sure enough there were users, but I
can't go into UAF and modify users, because it can't find any users. How can I
The Answer is :
The OpenVMS Wizard suspects you are not accessing the real SYSUAF
file. Try to SET DEFAULT to SYS$SYSTEM before invoking AUTHORIZE.
Alternatively, define the following logical names in your LOGIN.COM
or in the system-wide SYLOGIN.COM:
$ DEFLOG := Define/Table=LNM$PROCESS/NoLog
$ If F$TrnLnm("SYSUAF","LNM$SYSTEM_TABLE") .eqs. ""
$ DEFLOG SYSUAF Sys$System:SYSUAF.DAT
$ DEFLOG NETUAF Sys$System:NETUAF.DAT
$ DEFLOG NETPROXY Sys$System:NETPROXY.DAT
$ DEFLOG NET$PROXY Sys$System:NET$PROXY.DAT
$ DEFLOG RIGHTSLIST Sys$System:RIGHTSLIST.DAT
These logical names will permit AUTHORIZE to locate the SYSUAF and
related files regardless of the default directory.
For details on setting up the required logical name references to the
required shared files in an OpenVMS Cluster environment -- and
particularly for setting up a cluster with multiple system disks --
please see the comments in SYLOGICALS.TEMPLATE on OpenVMS V7.2 and
