Usermanager Replacement

We are upgrading to Itanium.
UserManager won't be ready in the time frame we need.
Does anyone know of another production that will setup user accounts?
It is better to STQ then LDQ

Re: Usermanager Replacement

John,

How big is the organisation?

If not too small it might be a wise idea to roll one yourself, which takes its input from the personnel system mutations.
It saves time, but the biggest advantage: always (well, nearly, allow for the update interval) SYNCHRONOUS personnel & SYSUAF info.
And that includes the biggest source of errors: human typos.

Side advantage (especially when users see some of their personal info reflected in the displays of some of the apps): any complaints about inaccuracies are diverted to the personnel department, so you get quality (of data) improvement there as well!

(in the month after we introduced this, the number of _KNOWN_ errors in the personnel system dropped from 5% to below 0.5%, just because of users nagging about misspelled names or inaccurate placement -- just harden yourself against complaint from that staff about the inordinate extra workload :-) )


just my EUR 0.02

Proost.

Have one on me.

Hi John

there is another product called XUAFMAESTRO. Its a Motif based application to manipulate accounts on OpenVMS. We are using this product since many years. We have 700 machines and 3500 users.

I currently don't know the name of the company, but as far as I know its located in Switzerland. If you are interested I can find out more.
