Re: How to check the password expired.

Luthfi,

if you produce a full SYSUAF listing, you can check for each user account:

Pwdlifetime: 90 00:00 Pwdchange: 11-AUG-2006 11:11

If the password change date plus the password lifetime delta time is greater then now, the password is expired.

Re: How to check the password expired.

Hi,

To check the vms account password exiration date and password lifttime..etc use these commands for a specific account.

$ set defa sys$system
$ mc authorize
$ show

the fields related to password for vms user account is available like...

Expiration:
Pwdminimum:
Login Fails:
Pwdlifetime:
Pwdchange:

if you want to take complete report on all users...

1. Take a listing of SYSUAF file

UAF> LIST * /full
SYSUAF.LIS is created by this command results with full reports for all users in ascending sequence by user name.

2. Generate the report by searching the specific strings you needed.

there is no specific function available within vms user management system to generate such report directly.

Re: How to check the password expired.

Luthfi,

... and if you want/need to set it as a general policy, just
MCR AUTHORIZE MOD * /
will modify ALL records.
For /PWDLIFE, specify 60 DAYS as 60- (include the minus-sign). Yo would not be the first to specify just 60, and find out that 60 HOURS is a quite short time!

hth,

Proost.

Have one on me.
