Starting with GUARDIAN D30, Alias users are introduced to the system, and co-exist beside GUARDIAN users. An Alias user has its own name (which is case sensitive), an individual password, and DEFAULT values (GUARDIAN security, DEFAULT volume, SAFEGUARD default ACL).

This is the good news.

The bad news is, that an Alias is mapped to a GUARDIAN-ID when he successfully has passed the authentication procedure. This means, that the ID of a running process does NOT show the real user behind it, which might be an Alias user. It is even worde, when several different Alias users are mapped into one GUARDIAN-ID.

WhoIs is the solution: It displays the real ID behind a GUARDIAN ID when there is one.
WhoIs displays the following user information:

    * Alias Name (if the user has logged on with an Alias name, e.g. Weber_Carl)
    * GUARDIAN name (group.name, e.g. GHS.CARL)
    * GUARDIAN ID (groupID,userID, e.g. 100,5)
    * home terminal
    * window address of home terminal (IP or X.25 DTE address)
