We would like to move to 128 long passwords.
But I am not sure of the distinction between level 2 and level 3.
level 3 has the restriction "I Series NetServer passwords for Windows
Network Neighborhood access are not kept on the system."
We map the IFS to windows xp drives on some of our pcs. If I remember
correctly, the first time they boot the pc, they may have to log into
netserver with IBM i password. But not after that. We have different
windows passwords from ibm i passwords. Uh, on xp we have different .
When we go to windows 7, we are asking for the same user name and password.
(Our network is peer to peer with hard coded ip addresses. No
DHCP/directory crap for us real programmers!, that and only having 25 pcs
to deal with)
So If I go to level 3 passwords, will my users have to log into netserver
every time they need something from the ifs?
I guess I want to know what happens with level two and what happens with
level three when a user needs a windows drive that is mapped to the ifs.
I realize I may have upper/lower case issues. I do a savsecdta every
night, so I should be able to recover from a major screw up.
