I have increased login_name_max to 64
but still I can not create a username more than 8 characters.I use adduser and the accounts manager GUI.I use Tru64 v5.1b.
Which tool to use to create the long usernames?

Hi, see this thread:

Specially, Han Pilmeyer answer.

I just tried and all user manipulation commands complains about username lenght.

Re: tru64 long usernames

As Han pointed out in the above-referenced thread, support for long usernames was never completed. The parameter login_name_max enables longer username support in the kernel only. However, none of the utilities that deal with usernames was modified to handle longer usernames.

Regrettably, there is simply no way to do it in Tru64 UNIX.
