DDN MGT Bulletin 94              DISA DDN Defense Communications System   
16 MARCH 1992                     Published by: DDN Network Info Center
                                      (NIC@NIC.DDN.MIL)  (800) 365-3642

                        DEFENSE  DATA  NETWORK
                         MANAGEMENT  BULLETIN

  The DDN MANAGEMENT BULLETIN is distributed online by the DDN Network
  Information Center under DISA contract as a means of communicating
  official policy, procedures and other information of concern to
  management personnel at DDN facilities.  Back issues may be read
  through the TACNEWS server ("@n" command at the TAC) or may be
  obtained by FTP (or Kermit) from the NIC.DDN.MIL host []
  using login="anonymous" and password="guest".  The pathname
  for bulletins is ddn-news/ddn-mgt-bulletin-nn.txt (where "nn" is the
  bulletin number).
                         AND TAC CARD EXPIRATION

Due to the restructuring of the reregistration schedule, some users may
have TAC cards whose expiration date has passed.  If you have such a card,
please be advised that these cards will remain valid until your host is
reregistered.  The reregistration schedule is now being finalized, and all
authorized host/gateway administrators will be notified of the month in
which their hosts are to be reregistered.  At this time, the templates for
their current users will be made available for any deletions/modifications. 
In addition, they will be asked to provide registration data for any new users
(additions to the database) on the standard template.

The DDN NIC has recently initiated a software change that will allow the
WHOIS database to specifically identify the users on a particular host
that has moved behind a gateway. In the past, users associated with a host
that moved behind a gateway appeared to be associated with the gateway rather
than their specific host when queried in WHOIS.  This recent software
enhancement now allows you to use WHOIS to do the following:

    1) display all pertinent information regarding a particular gateway
    2) see a list of all the hosts behind the gateway and
    3) view all the registered users associated with these hosts.

These users will now be registered against the host on which they have their
primary login account.

The DDN NIC will initiate a final effort to increase the efficiency of the
TAC Card process within several weeks. This will consist of a comprehensive
review of the NIC database to ensure that all mailing addresses to which TAC
Cards are sent are as complete and accurate as possible.  Special
attention will be given to OCONUS sites, since these locations have been
especially difficult to send mail to.  With the help of all authorizing host/
gateway administrators, this project will further streamline the TAC Card
distribution process and will ensure that cards reach their final destination
as quickly and efficiently as possible.
