I have a user profile whose invalid login attempts count in a day which is stored in the user profile does not match the logins recorded in DSPLOG for that day. How can i get details of all the invalid logins attempted by the user. Apart from DSPLOG is there anywhere else this is recorded and can be matched with count recorded in the user profile.

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

Try Charlies suggestion below. You may also have login credentials coded in programs that use FTP connections or are from external processes using web services connecting to a DB2 datbase to name a few others. Those should not cause an invalid attempt unless the password was changed and teh program is still using the old information. These should still show by using the DSPLOG QHST.

    You can do a DSPLOG QHST to *PRINT and specify the MSGID(s) that you are looking for. Then either look at the report or copy the SPLF to a DB file and use SQL or a program to get a count.

    If you're auditing your system (and if not, why not?) DSPAUDJRNE ENTTYP(PW) JRNRCV(*CURCHAIN) will provide you an accurate account of invalid password entries.

    We have used workarounds like this a lot. Our manager decided to to use journaling. Said there was too much overhead for our system, that was a few years ago. Would be nice and help solve some issues quicker but we need to find these back door methods if the proper tools can't be used.
