Changing user password settings

When changing minimum password length settings or other password requirements, AS/400 users will have to work with the updated password settings the next time they are required to change their password, but their current passwords will not be affected.

If we change the Minimum Password length, (or other Password controls) system value to require a longer password, is there any impact on "current" users? Or does it only affect users the next time they change their password?
There is no affect to current users. The password change requirements will be implemented the next time the user is required to change their password.
