Configuring Identifiers for UIC Users, Groups?

» close window

The Question is:

When a users UIC looks like
"UIC:    [100,7] ([groupname,idname])", with "MOD/ID/NAME=newidname oldidname"
 you can rename a users ID.
But how do you accomplish this when the users UIC looks like "UIC:    [100,1]
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

The Answer is :

  The user has no associated individual identifier, and there is also no
  associated group identifier.
  With no group identifier for the UIC group, the UIC will contain just
  the user's alphanumeric individual identifier -- if it exists.
  With neither identifier configured, the UIC will be entirely numeric.
  This is the present case, obviously.
  To add an identifier TEXTNAME for UIC [100,1], you can AUTHORIZE
  commands such as ADD/IDENTIFIER/VALUE=UIC:[100,1] TEXTNAME
  To create the UIC group identifier, please see the instructions in the
  OpenVMS Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) document.
  It is also possible that another identifier has prevented the creation
  of the individual or the group identifier.  If there is a collision,
  one or both of the identifiers would have to be renamed or removed.
