Subj:   Re: User Password Change Scripts
From:   Sam Mosley

I think GQL uses ODBC, but I think I have seen some versions of the tool in the past, put the password change dialogue screen behind the application instead of on top of it, so users don't see it. It might also minimize the password dialogue so that they have to check the bottom of their screen and bring it back up. If they do a little looking around for it when they attempt to logon, and don't see anything happening I think they will find it. It's not intuitive. However, David is correct that the NCR ODBC driver has recognized password aging for several years, and provides the user an opportunity to update it. Depending upon how your system is configured you may only get a few chances to update it before someone else has to come in and reset it for the user. Some shops allow unlimited attempts, others, for security reasons, only allow a preconfigured number of attempts before locking the user.
