Passwords commands

These commands enable the security administrator to assign, change, verify, or reset password associated with a user profile.

Table 1. Passwords commands
Command name Descriptive name Function
CHGDSTPWD Change Dedicated Service Tools Password Reset the DST security capabilities profile to the default password shipped with the system.
CHGPWD Change Password Change the user’s own password.
CHGUSRPRF Change User Profile Change the values specified in a user’s profile, including the user’s password.
CHKPWD Check Password Verify a user’s password. For example, if you want the user to enter the password again to run a particular application, you can use CHKPWD in your CL program to verify the password.
CRTUSRPRF1 Create User Profile When you add a user to the system, you assign a password to the user.
When a CRTUSRPRF is done, you cannot specify that the *USRPRF is to be created into an independent auxiliary storage pool (ASP). However, when a user is privately authorized to an object on an independent ASP, the user is the owner of an object on an independent ASP, or the user is the primary group of an object on an independent ASP, the profile's name is stored on the independent ASP. If the independent ASP is moved to another system, the private authority, object ownership, and primary group entries will be attached to the profile with the same name on the target system. If a profile does not exist on the target system, a profile will be created. The user will not have any special authorities and the password will be set to *NONE.
