Subj:   Re: Selective Password Expiration

Hi Ulrich,

Sorry, but I must haved missed something earlier on.

You are correct. Trying to tie up passwords on different client platforms is difficult (at best) and can be very time-consuming.

To ease your burden a little bit, you can set up your Teradata system such that you don't need password when logging on from MVS. The feature is called "NULL PASSWORDS" and can be implemented without you having to write any code.

(I apologise if you already know this bit, but) when logging on to Teradata from MVS, you can get the TDP to check with the MVS security package (RACF, ACF/2 or TSS) whether or not the specified MVS userid is allowed to logon to that TDP using the specified Teradata userid - and no password is required. In this way, you don't need to be concerned about changing passwords for userid's logging on from MVS. Check the "Security Administration" manual for details.

That still leaves Unix and BO users of course...
