Another approach you can take to syncing passwords between AS/400's.
We used the system value QPWDVLDPGM.  It runs after the rest of the password 
checks run.  We have it execute a program on the remote 400(s) that does a 
CHGUSRPRF.  I wrote a simple encryption routine so the password doesn't go 
across the network in the clear.

Subject:        Sync Passwords on two AS/400's

I need to sync passwords on two AS/400's.  I have come across the API's QSYRUPWD
and QSYSUPWD.  I have never used API calls before and I am having a little
trouble getting started.  I have looked in the online library at IBM's site, and
this is what I have come up with;  (in it's simplist form)

C                   Movel     *blanks       recv           2000
C                   z-add     8             len               4 0
C                   Movel     'USER1'       USER             10
C                   Movel     'UPWD0100'    FORM              8
C                   Movel     *blanks       Error           100
C                   CALL      'QSYRUPWD'
c                   PARM                    RECV
c                   PARM                    LEN
c                   PARM                    FORM
c                   PARM                    USER
c                   PARM                    ERROR
C                   Movel     'USER2'       USER             10
c
C                   CALL      'QSYSUPWD'
c                   PARM                    RECV
c                   PARM                    FORM
c                   PARM      *blanks       ERROR
c                   seton                                        lr


This should make USER2's password match USER1.

If I debug and look at RECV after the first call, I see various characters - the
encrypted password I suppose.  However, after the second call is made, USER2's
password does not change.   There is nothing but blanks on ERROR at this point.

Any help?   Thanks.
