Besides, if the person with the windows id has an i id then it's no
problem to tell the 5250 to connect using the windows profile and bypass
We actually had a setup in which, if you didn't bypass signon, it wouldn't
work. Because it used SSO to connect and their 5250 profile did not allow
local signon. We had that because we had to use biometrics. Their
fingerprint scanner was the only way to log in to their laptop. And SSO
used that via the above for 5250.
We've abandoned most of that.
Now we use Tivoli Identity Manager to keep windows, i, etc passwords in
sync. Long before that we had strict administrative policies that your i
user profile had to match your windows id. You don't mess with our BOFH.
