I got a really good one for you experts out there -
I have finally convinced everyone here to be more secure -
we are at V4R4 most recent PTF's and sec level 40

I have a user that blew my mind, his old password was 1212
he now changed it (30 days expire) to 121212 -
not the brightest thing, but at least people are cooperating

According to the IBM manuals, and even if as QSECOFR the first
position of a password must be character -

I use chgpwd, or chgusrprf, and I cannot do this,
how in the world could a user do this, and yet another attempted 1010tree
could not change the password -

1212 user has NO special authorities, does not matter if client access full
or express

anyone got a clue how this could happen???
