User Operations

User operations available in ctadmn are as follows:

  • Add New User by:
    • Entering a new User ID.
    • (optional) Enter a long name (i.e., a text string) for use as a User Description (e.g., for screen displays, where the User ID may be too terse).
    • (optional) Enter a User Memory Limit, which is a maximum memory allocation for this particular user that will override maximum memory allocations set at the server-level (for any user) or at the group level (for any particular group).
    • (optional) Enter the User Memory Rule: Absolute, Guideline, or Default. See USR_MEM_RUL in Configuring the FairCom Server for details.
    • (optional) Enter a user password.
    • (optional) Assign user membership in from 1 to 128 Groups (i.e., Group IDs).
    • (optional) Enter the first valid date for this User ID.
    • (optional) Enter the last valid date for this User ID.
    • (optional) Enter limit on consecutive logon failures if different from system default. See LOGON_FAIL_LIMIT in Miscellaneous Control for details.
  • Remove an existing User ID.
  • List authorized User IDs.
  • Change the Password for a given User ID.
  • Change which Group(s) a User ID is associated with by adding (up to 128) or removing groups from a list of a User’s association with Group IDs.
  • Change the User Description, i.e., change the long name identifying the User ID.
  • Change User Memory. Change the maximum amount of FairCom Server memory a given user can consume.
  • Change Extended Logon Validation, including start date, end date, and consecutive logon failures.
  • Change User Logon Limit limits users to a specified number of concurrent logons based on their user name. By default, the limit is zero, meaning no limit.
