How do you set up a DECnet username and password for a system. ?

Ex.
New TSTSTG> copy bls_login.com team07::q.q/log

%COPY-E-OPENOUT, error opening TEAM07::Q.Q; as output

-RMS-E-CRE, ACP file create failed

-SYSTEM-F-INVLOGIN, login information invalid at remote node

%COPY-W-NOTCOPIED, $1$DUA21:[BLS]BLS_LOGIN.COM;45 not copie

Re: Help

You can put a valid username and password in the command:

copy bls_login.com team07"username password"::q.q/log

There are other ways to get by having to specify the username and password, like using DECnet proxies.

Re: Help

If security is not an issue you can even use a user without password. But limit access to "network" in authorize (optional since security is not an issue).

Re: Help

Miles,

Determine a valid account to receive the copy at TEAM07 (mayby your own?)

At TEAM07 issue
UAF> ADD/PROXY TSTSTG:: /default

If you now execute the COPY from your question, BLS_LOGIN.COM will be in SYS$LOGIN for , and renamed to Q.Q

The remote filespec can include file spec for any other location, and/or filename, just as long as has write permission.

Re: Help

Miles,

Accounts with DECnet access are added to the system like any other accounts, using the AUTHORIZE utility. One example of all of the procedures that use AUTHORIZE is in SYS$EXAMPLES:ADDUSER.COM.

Remember, you need to allow NETWORK access, and you need AT LEAST the NETMBX and TMPMBX privileges.

You can then use the account for DECnet file accesses, whether ny specifying it explicitly in the file name, or implicitly using the network proxy mechanism.

Re: Help

Miles,

Could you please use more descriptive titles than "Help"?

In this case the system TEAM07 does not have a default DECnet account for the FAL object. This would have been the choice of the system manager who installed and configured DECnet, and maybe required by site security policies.

If it's acceptable security, you can reconfigure DECnet to add a default FAL account. For phase IV it's @SYS$STARTUP:NETCONFIG, for Phase V it's @SYS$STARTUP:NET$CONFIGURE.

Please read the documentation for configuring DECnet BEFORE starting the procedure, or log a case with your local customer support centre for assistance.

Again, this involves opening holes in your system security, and should NOT be done without reference to security policies, and an understanding of the potential risks.
