We've created our own program to do additional password validation, but we're running into problems displaying the error message. We used the sample program from the iSeries Security Reference Manual as a template. Messages are sent using the SNDPGMMSG command. The message displays correctly when the user has already established a 5250 session. However, if the user is going through iSeries Access and is prompted (by a pop up window that displays: Password will expire in XX days or password expired) for the user ID/password, the message is not displayed. I suspect it is because the 5250 session is not established. Any thoughts?
I believe that the problem is that iSeries Access has their own hard-coded messages and they are not "looking for" messages from a password validation program. I've talked with IBM about this and there is currently no way around it. I suggest that you enter a program change request so that the iSeries Access message is customizable in this situation.
