The Question is:
No errors or problems to report, just a question:
I'm trying to learn more about privileges used in the SYSUAF. For now I'm most
interested in SYSNAM and SYSPRV (so someone can set others' email forwarding
addresses and create new accounts, resp). The manuals don't go into any
detail as to exactly what
someone w/ those (or any of the other privileges) is able to do. Is there a
list of privileges along w/ detailed descriptions and examples, anywhere?
The Answer is :
Short answer to "what can a user do with SYSNAM or SYSPRV?": Anything.
These and other privileges are described in some detail in the security
manual. Please start there.
These and any other ALL-class privileges permit the holder to perform
ANY activities, either directly or through privileges easily accessable
to any user possessing any of the ALL privileges.
If you are unsure of the location of the documentation for a particular
OpenVMS construct, feature, mechanism, or term, please familiarize
yourself with the OpenVMS Master Index Manual. The Master Index is
the key to finding the location(s) of relevent documentation within
the OpenVMS documentation set, without resorting to a search engine.
