Is there a way to validate a password for a user profile other than the one who is signed on? The software package we use has an 'operator' file that stores the password as well. I will be removing the passwords from the file and using CHKPWD to validate passwords in the instances where a checkpoint is reached that requires re-entry of a password. We do want to keep this functionality. However, this checkpoint is also used to allow entry of another operator/password. The reasoning is that a supervisor could assign a task to a user who does not have authority to that particular menu option. The supervisor would then enter his own operator/password combination. When the user leaves the menu option, the authority is removed. In this instance,the prompt for a password using the CHKPWD command will fail because the password is for a user profile other than the person who has signed on.
