UAFALTERNATE is a system parameter that enables or disables the assignment of SYSUAF as the logical name for SYSUAFALT, causing all references to the user authorization file (SYSUAF) to be translated to SYS$SYSTEM:SYSUAFALT. Use of the normal user authorization file (SYS$SYSTEM:SYSUAF) can be restored by deassigning the system logical name SYSUAF. This parameter should be set on (1) only when the system is being used by a restricted set of users. You must create a user authorization file named SYSUAFALT prior to setting UAFALTERNATE to 1. UAFALTERNATE has the GEN and MAJOR attributes.
