The Question is:
What is the maximum number of characters allowed in a user ID? Are there plans
to increase this in future releases?
The Answer is :
The native OpenVMS username is limited to 12 (though the internal fields
are 32 characters), and the OpenVMS Wizard is presently aware of no plans
to increase the size from 12 characters due to the impact this change would
have on various applications. That said, the OpenVMS Wizard would code new
applications and would update existing applications (as feasible) to assume
a maximum username length of at least 32 characters.
