Just to throw a crazy idea out there - think about setting up single-sign-on with the Kerberos support on IBM i. You can even try it for just one person - there's an SSO 101 article on Developerworks.

This assumes you are on a Windows network with authentication to an Active Directory server.

The benefits?
1. No stickies under the keyboard with passwords
2. No calls to help desk to re-enable users - estimates up to 40% reduction in calls to help desk

We thus get many help desk requests to reenable.

I would like to know, if I can get a notification that someone's Userid
has become disabled. If not this, can a REPORT be made that
will show those with disabled pw.

I looked at dspusrprf with outfile but it does not show the enabled status.
