Obtaining the VMS input file

 

To enable VScan to work, you have to give it a file from the Alpha/VAX system being reviewed.

This file is produced using a very simple command run by a System Manager. It is then copied to the PC running AZScan.

1) Ask the system manager to produce the file for you by issuing the following commands:

$ mc authorize list */full

The command generates a SysUAF file called 'sysuaf.lis'. If you examine the file, it will look like this:

Username: GEN_PM   Owner: DEP - P.SMITH
Account: GENX   UIC: [100,10] ([GEN,BBL])
CLI:   DCL Tables: DCLTABLES
Default: GEN_DISK:[GEN]    
LGICMD: LOG$:LOGIN    
Flags: DisPwdDic Captive    
Primary days: Mon Tue Wed Thu Fri    
Secondary days: Sat Sun    
No access restrictions    
Expiration: 47 00:00 Pwdminimum: 2 Login Fails: 17

Copy this file to the PC running AZScan.

Rename the file carefully when you copy it to the PC as it is usually called sysuaf.lis on the alpha/vax system.
