I do believe there is a way to sync your NT passwords with your AS400 from
the NT Domain controller.  It may have been a third party package / add-on
to NT.  That is the direction I would Go.  Remember you have to restrict
your NT to 10 character user names and passwords.

passwo rds?

Hi all.

We have a number of users here who need access to the AS/400 via
NetServer only; they are not AS/400 programmers, they never need to sign
on to a green screen, but they do need to be able to add and edit files
in the IFS.

We have NetServer running, appropriate shares set up, and User Profiles
set up matching the Windows user names.  However, I can't find any way
to allow such users to change their AS/400 passwords from the PC.  It
would seem like massive overkill to insall Client Access Express on each
machine and show them all how to sign on and change their passwords.

We're on V4R4 and NT4, FWIW.  I've searched the archives, IBM's site and
Usenet fairly comprehensively, and I'm beginning to believe that there
is no solution to this.  But surely IBM couldn't be so dumb...? :-)
