(DP) support tip: How to add/remove wildcard user entry in DP10.03+ via CLI



When starting DP GUI it reports error..


[154:64450] User Authentication failed

Logged in User not found in Micro Focus Data Protector.


Please ask the Micro Focus Data Protector Admin to add the user into Micro Focus Data Protector.




One possible cause is that the user is not found by DP.


Pre DP10.03 to rule out "user" issue one would add wildcard entry in userlist file with the following entry.


* * * * admin


From 10.03 and above to achieve the same outcome, one would used the following omniusers command instead..


cmd> omniusers -add -type W -usergroup admin -name "*" -group "*" -client "*" -pass DataPr0tect0r*


To remove the wildcard entry..

cmd> omniusers -remove -name "*|*|*"
