One thing I have noticed. If you are connecting via Ops Nav, 
you must put the "Q" in to sign on....why I do not know.

To create a numeric password, such as, 1212, you create the password as
Q1212. The user would then use 1212 as the password.

        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
        and
        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???

        TIA
