In the July 2006 issue of System iNews there was an article "Watching for
Messages Made Easy" which monitored for a specific user profile being
disabled due to the number of invalid password attempts, and then
re-enabling that specific user profile. The article provided examples in
CL, RPG, COBOL, and C. The article is based on the V5R4 message watch
capability of i5/OS.

Re: [Security400] Disabled Userids

The system value rules for # times bad password and what action
are global. But you can in the profile set this "batch-only" profile
to not expire to avoid an expire problem.
Set password to expired . . . . *NO
If it is "batch-only", then how did you hit this problem?

Is anyone aware if a way exists to exempt a userid profile from
switching to a *DISABLED status when too many invalid passwords may be
entered? We have some special userids used for batch-only applications,
and if they happened to get disabled the applications would return
