Creating user to use Samba on OpenVMS 8.3

Greetings,

I have successfully upgraded OpenVMS 8.2-1 with 8.3 on the Integrity server and running the latest Samba version for VMS. What or how do I grant a user to use the Samba after their VMS account has been created?

Please help.

Thank you in advance.

Jorge,

This is from the doecumentation:

3.8. How to Add a User
To add a user on the host system or Samba database, follow these steps:
1. Check whether the user exists on the host system. If not, add the user to the system. For
more details about adding user to the system, refer to the HP OpenVMS System Managerâ s
Manual.
2. Ensure that user added to the host system must have an UNIQUE UIC and ADD_IDENTIFIER
qualifiers and flag set to NODISUSER.
3. Check whether the user exists on the Samba database. If not, add the user to the system by
entering the following command:
$ PDBEDIT -A
E.g.: $ PDBEDIT -A TEST1
Note: Ensure that the user exists on the host system before adding it to Samba database.
4. To change the password, enter the following command:
$ NET RAP PASSWORD --user
%
Note: Alternatively, the user can change the password from the
Windows client.
