    *SECADM needs to compile a cl with *OWNER authority The CL can issue the required command. CHGUSRPRF The program could accept user profile as an input.-this could be a display file. 1. Generate a random password - 2. Update the usrprof password 3. Reset PWDEXP to *YES 4. Change Status to *ENABLED 5. Send a copy of the Password to the person running the request. - display on the screen *SECADM can grant run authority to the specific users who need to run this command. Phil

    Are you trying to reset the ADMIN password as this has been lost? This may be different.

    You need *SECADM in order to perform the function of changing any passwords other than your own. You also need at least object management (*OBJMGT) and use (*USE) authority to whatever profiles are to be changed. The authorities can be adopted by running an adopted-authority program. Tom
