I usually do it at login time, but yes, there is a RACF command - unfortunately I can not remeber it.

The RACF command to change a password is... PASSWORD icon_biggrin.gif

You may also try ALTUSER.

You can use the command " ALU USERID PASS(PASSWORD) RESUME".

But please note that password reset can be done with the id having SPECIAL or OPERATIONS attributes.

Hi,

I've been using the above via ISPF option 6
Code:
PASSWORD PASSWORD(oldpswd newpswd)
to change your own password.

If you use RACF, you can change your password by submitting a job as well:
Code:
//XXXXXXXX JOB (ACCT INFO),'PGMR INFO', 
//     CLASS=??,MSGCLASS=??,NOTIFY=yourid,         
//     USER=yourid,PASSWORD=(OLDPASS,NEWPASS)   
//IEBFR14  EXEC PGM=IEFBR14

Hello again,

Continuing with above...

Once this job executes, it will verify your old password and will update it to the new password (as long as it meet your security standards). In the job's output, you will NOT see the contents of your PASSWORD statement.

You can then enter TSO LU yourid on the command line. The PASSDATE field should indicate it was updated with today's julian date.

Unless you have the SPECIAL attribute on your userid, you do not have authorization to alter another user's password.
