We're currently looking at various methods for resetting a password for a user that forgot their password, and got varied off.

PS-- we also have a file of profiles to never disable that we match against the DSPUSRPRF output file.

Set QMAXSGNACN to 3 - Disable Device and Profile??

Or do you want the profile (or a specific profile) re-activated?

We have several scheduled jobs for passwords:

- change any profile that has never signed on to PASSWORD(*NONE)
- change any profile not used in 180 days to PASSWORD(*NONE)
- change profiles with passwords older than 60 days and not used will be DISABLED
- for selected shop floor accounts that get disabled, re-enable them automatically.

Most of these are based on DSPUSRPRF to an outfile, then reading that file (in a CLP) and doing appropriate things.

Monitor for CPF1397

Cause . . . . . : The maximum number of sign on attempts specified by system
value QMAXSIGN has been reached. The device has been varied off for
security reasons.

Reset how? Automatically assign a new password after so many days? We just set the Password Expiration Interval. There are a few profiles, like QSECOFR, that don't reset ever...
