Thanks for that. There's no mention of that logical name in the VMS help
file but I'll give it a try.
The reason for one shared key ring is that the encrypt/decrypt job will
normally be run under the overnight batch account but in the event of a
failure support staff need to re-run jobs under their own accounts. The key
ring should be the same for all.
Yeah I know, there are a lot of VMS Privs to remember. All the accounts
that use this process are system type accounts.

Well, not sure of the implementation on VMS, but try setting GNUPGHOME
DEFINE/SYS GNUPGHOME TD1:[<user>.GNUPG]
Of course, You'll need sysprv in order to do that
Is there a good reason for wanting ALL users to use the same keyrings?
