I think you hit on the only real problem with it, which is communications with systems that might not be at the same level. If you have DRDA or other inter system communications going on (BRMS network would be one example) then the system values etc, need to be set properly to allow proper authentication.

Ordinarily it’s not that big of a problem. We do it in our own systems and customer systems all the time. Telnet, FTP etc., will not be much of an issue, nor will SSH. (Consider the system environment variable to allow 10 character users in SSH as opposed to the 8 characters that are the default)

Hi Team,

I have been reading up on this as one client we look after is wanting to
introduce longer passwords.

After reading, a couple of times I was not sure what issues may arise for
intersystem connections if one or more are on password level 0/1 and one
is on password level 2.

For example we connect using telnet mostly secure on port 992 but also
some on port 23, we also use ftp between a lot of systems, ssh and we have
PHP accessing with XMLSERVICE

As this requires an IPL to implement it is not a super quick option to
revert back to the previous level.

Can you share your experience and difficulties in changing QPWDLVL to 2
