Password Expiration Interval

I have an AS/400 server with hundreds of users. How do I build a complete list of all users whose password expiration interval is set to *NOMAX. The QPWDEXPITV system value is set to *NOMAX. But, I want the list irrespective of QPWDEXPITV parameter. 1 yr down the line, if I change QPWDEXPITV to 90 days even then the query which provides me the list of non-expiring users should be accurate. I will appreciate a prompt and reliable answer. Thank you

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Hi,

You should be able to use DSPUSRPRF to create an output file :-

DSPUSRPRF USRPRF(*ALL) OUTPUT(*OUTFILE) OUTFILE(YOURLIB/YOURFILE)

Then you can use Query to select the user profiles with password expiration of *NOMAX. This should be field UPPWEI < 0. If field UPPWEI = 0 then this should use the system value QPWDEXPITV.

Regards,

Martin Gilbert.

You should ignore it and put the effort into removing all of the passwords. Why mess around with them when an EIM/SSO setup makes them obsolete?
