Why do you want to password-protect a personal Dataset? This is usually (read as always) discouraged. Why? It hampers the HSM activity; is one of the examples of not doing this.

If it's very necessary, speak with the security support people and follow they guidelines on protecting datasets.

Careful. Many (most?) shops do not permit you to do this. You are supposed to rely on your security system (typically RACF, ACF2 or Top Secret) to protect data sets.
