    I want to login to the AS400 through PC Console. If I am trying to login to it is asking me for access password. I am not aware of the password. What is the way to reset the access password.

    Hi Michael, I got the way to reset the DST password from the similar question. Here my problem is the access password in the prompt where we give our DST password. I want to reset the access password.

    It's not totally clear the exact problem, but you might need to go through the Resynchronizing the PC and service tools device ID password procedure. If that gets you through this problem, the next step needs to be to store your passwords somewhere that you can retrieve from later. You can't expect to have a secure system without an authentication mechanism, and passwords are a critical part of its security. If they can't be remembered, you better have a place where you can find them. -- Tom

    Hi Tom, My problem is we are having PC Console installed in a server. I am able to login to the server remotely. When I am trying to get in to the console three inputs I need to give, first one is Access Password second one is Service tool user ID and the third one is DST password. Now I do not know the access password. What should I need to do...?

    And I think you need to go through the 'Resynchronization' procedure in my previous comment. Since you cannot provide the password to access the device, you need to prove to the system that you have a valid console capability. If a system's console is going to be operated through a network interface, the system security needs to be very strict in order to guarantee that it isn't just some average PC pretending to be the console. I'm pretty sure that I wouldn't have a business console session running from a PC server. I would have it on a separate PC/device. -- Tom

    Just a side note. If you plan on using a networked PC as your system console you could have a problem looming. If you have a power failure and your i-Series is on a UPS that is good. IF your network and PC are not on a UPS as well you will not be able to shut down your i-Series safely. We had that problem happen here and it was not my decision to run the system console from a networked PC. The end result?? System went down hard and then I spent many hours rebuilding and recovering damaged files. Just thought I'd pass this along as a word of caution..
