Aging SYSUAF Entries by Last Login?

» close window

The Question is:

I am trying to generate a report from SYSUAF that will list only the accounts
 that have not been logged into in the last 6-months.  I have retrieved a FULL
 sysuaf report with the "list/full" command, but I was wondering if there was a
 way to pull accounts
 with login dates.

The Answer is :

  There are freeware packages around and there are documented APIs within
  OpenVMS that can be used to acquire this ($getuai, the C getpwnam call),
  but there is no direct means to retrieve or age SYSUAF entries within
  the provided OpenVMS utilities.  The password lifetime mechanism is
  probably the closest to what you seek.  Alternatively, a correlation
  with the OpenVMS security auditing available for user activity can be
  used to generate this information.
