Haven't hit it yet - The application is being migrated from mainframe to
iSeries and they are concerned that their application will go down if
these two specific non-interactive userids get disabled somehow. I need
to check the effect of setting the password to *NONE on the batch
process and also the invalid password attempts. I've told them I doubt
there is a solution to this inquiry, but I needed to say I've researched
it.

Like they say on the TV show The Office, "I'll check wikipedia.com. If
everyone in the world can contribute to it, you know you're only getting
the best answers...."

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
abends.

Thanks!
Steve
