Hi,

I see to Security Admin part in my unit.We use the VRA (Vanguard Admin) for the RACF admin.Whenever a mainframe user id password gets revoked we have a option 6 in the VRA (which i go into from TSO) where we resume the password and reset the password.
I want to know is there any command in TSO by means of which we can resume the password of the user without using the VRA option.Please let me know.

Under TSO/ISPF you can reset the user password using RACF command:

==> TSO ALU myuserid PASSWORD(mypwd) RESUME

hope this helps!
