I noticed that this is the case on the satellite discussed in another 
thread, but not on any of the other machines.  I don't recall ever 
setting it; maybe my own memory has a parity error.

I usually set mine to "VDC" and leave it.  My SYSTARTUP_VMS.COM has a purge
and rename to ;1 of SYS$SPECIFIC:[SYSEXE]STARTUP.LOG.  Set it and forget it
unless it's handy/needed.

From SYS$SYSTEM:STARTUP.COM :

$if f$locate("V",p2) .nes. f$length(p2) then stdrv$verify = stdrv$true
$if f$locate("D",p2) .nes. f$length(p2) then stdrv$log = stdrv$true
$if f$locate("C",p2) .nes. f$length(p2) then stdrv$verbose = stdrv$true
$if f$locate("P",p2) .nes. f$length(p2) then stdrv$comp_verify = stdrv$true

So if you include "D" in STARTUP_P2 the startup log file is created. What goes into the log file is determined by the other three options. "V" turns on verification of all startup command procedures and generates a lot of text.

I normally use "DC". That generates a small log file with all relevant (to me)information.

HTH,

Bart

You might have enabled this with the SYSMAN utility:

SYSMAN> startup set options/output=3Dfile

That won't modify MODPARAMS.DAT so you will lose the setting on your 
next AUTOGEN.

Ditto with the setting of "VDC" but I purge to 5 versions in a separate 
daily maintenance job so that in the event of finger trouble when 
modifying startup procedures, or hardware errors causing repeated 
starts, I have more diagnostic information to go at.

Phillip,

My preference on running systems is to use SYSMAN for short-term changes. F=
or permanent changes (e.g., I generally want unattended machines to log the=
 startup process to a file, rather than to an unwatched screen), I would pu=
t the change into MODPARAMS.DAT to ensure that the "policy" change propagat=
es through future operation of AUTOGEN.

Of course, if I am building/maintaining an OpenVMS Cluster, I prefer to mai=
ntain site/cluster-specific underlying MODPARAMS.DAT files as an underlying=
 base for site/cluster-generic parameter settings. I discussed this use of =
AGEN$INCLUDE in my 2011 OpenVMS Bootcamp presentation "Using OpenVMS Techno=
logies to Build an Agile Computing Base" (slides/audio available at: http:/=
/www.rlgsc.com/openvms-bootcamp/2011/agile-openvms.html)

Yeah, I mentioned that I alwasy set mine to "VDC".  I couldn't remember
which enabled the actual log.

The SYSMAN STARTUP commands are not the most intuitive...

Check when a user last logged in?
I'm trying to make a script that will remove/point out or delete old user accounts. The problem is, I have no idea how to check when a user last logged in! Checking the modification date of the home folder will not work because there are many users that use the same home folder.
