It is possible, but very difficult and something you should not try to do.

    Personally I've never run across this request in 30+ years starting with the s/38 thru the i7. What is the need for case sensitivity for a user profile log in? Is this being passed from an outside application?

    Dear Todd,

    Thanks for your prompt reply,

    This issue was brought up by our Internal Audit Department. I'm also never heard case sensitive password thing for as400.They needed to apply existing password policies to as400 as well, thats where I face this issue.

    Aiso I want to know the about QPWDRULES system value,In our i7 server its value is *PWDSYSVAL. how can I find this rule, Can we create a new rule.

    Thanks in Advance

    QPWDLVL is the system value to change the style of the password

    Are you trying to enable case sensitive or back out case sensitive? Enabling is easy but requires an IPL. This should be done on a test server 1st if at all possible. Many of our web based applications making data base connections had to be changed to make user ids lowercase and have the correct case for the password. The change was required by our auditors.

    Going to have to look into this further. I just tried to enter lower case into our "Green Screen" login via a client access session. You can't enter lower case. 

    On the flip side I have a .NET app that uses a DB2 connection string using lower case and it works fine. Changed the ID and PWD to upper and it still works.
            If cbiSeries1.Checked Then
                strConnection = "DataSource=10.10.06.011;userid=testid;password=testpwd;DefaultCollection=PRODDATA;Pooling=False;Connect Timeout=30;"
            End If
