how2 create a user like 'nobody' with Enhanced Sec

Hi,

Im trying to create a user like the 'nobody' user on our Tru64 v5.1B system with Enhanced Security activated.
The 'nobody' user has '*NoLogin' as password in the /ect/passwd.
I would like to add a similar user,e.g. testuser
Before ES I just used vipw to put the '*NoLogin' in the passwd but with ES password are not stored there any more and don't find an option in dxaccounts to create a user similar to the 'nobody' user

Any help much appreciated.

Hi,

There's several ways you can approach this. Here's a couple:

1) create the account, but leave it locked. The account cannot be logged into whether or not it has a password.

2) use the edauth tool (see man edauth) to edit the account after it has been created and set the contents of the u_pwd field to "*NoLogin".
