    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: zSecure Admin/Audit reports the 'Mixed  *
    *                      case password' field as 'Yes' or 'No'   *
    *                      even if a user has no password or is    *

    *                 documentation updates.                       *
    ****************************************************************
    When a user has no password or is protected, the zSecure
    Admin/Audit still reports the 'Mixed case password' field as
    'Yes' or 'No'
    

Problem conclusion

  • zSecure Admin/Audit has been modified so that the 'Mixed case
    password' field is replaced by the 'Mixed case password in
    effect' field that is reported as blank (missing) for users
    that have no password or are protected.
    Please note the documentation changes as provided by the APAR
    tracking comment data.
