Registers Windows user passwords in LSF. Passwords must be 3 - 23 characters long.


lspasswd [-u DOMAIN_NAME\user_name] [-p password] [-t host_type]
lspasswd [-r] [-u DOMAIN_NAME\user_name] [-t host_type]
lspasswd [-c] [-u DOMAIN_NAME\user_name] [-t host_type]
lspasswd [-h | -V]


All users can create and verify passwords; only the LSF administrator and root can delete passwords.

Users must update the password that is maintained by LSF if they change their Windows user account password.

Passwords are Windows user account passwords and are saved in the LSF database. LSF uses the passwords to start jobs on behalf of the user. Passwords are stored in encrypted format and the password database is protected by file access permissions. Passwords remain encrypted as they travel through the network.

From UNIX platforms, the option -u DOMAIN_NAME\user_name must be entered inside double quotation marks "DOMAIN_NAME\user_name" or with a double backslash DOMAIN_NAME\\user_name to avoid reading backslash ("\") as an escape character.

The -p option allows scripts to use the lspasswd command. Do not use this option directly on the command line because the password is entered in full view on the command line. Only error messages are displayed with the -p option.

Specify the -t option (identifying a Windows server host type) only if you are both running the lspasswd command from a UNIX host and you defined customized Windows host types other than the defaults. The specified host type can be any existing Windows server host type, it does not have to be the execution host type.

The -t option is not needed and is ignored if run from a Windows host.


-c -u DOMAIN_NAME\user_name -t host_type
Check that the password that is saved in LSF is valid for the specified user.
-r -u DOMAIN_NAME\user_name -t host_type
Remove the user entry from the password database.
-u DOMAIN_NAME\user_name -p password -t host_type
Specify the user and password for the user whose password you want to register or change.
