Re: Understanding QPWDLVL? . . . and my previous Tomcat query



fixed

Excellent description of that at
http://pic.dhe.ibm.com/infocenter/iseries/v7r1m0/topic/rzarl/sc415302.pdf
"Planning password level changes"

Telnet is specifically laid out as may be affected. Why?

<snip>
Any client that uses password substitution will not work correctly at
QPWDLVL 2 if the client hasn't
been updated to use the new password (passphrase) substitution scheme. The
administrator should check
whether a client which hasn't been updated to the new password
substitution scheme is required.
The clients that use password substitution include:
v TELNET
v System i Access
v System i Host Servers
v QFileSrv.400
v System i NetServer Print support
v DDM
v DRDA
v SNA LU6.2
</snip>

This book also describes levels at which a password entered in all upper
case, or all lower case, works when mixed case may cause issues, and why.
