One Search400.com member writes, "We have eight iSeries systems, with the same user ID's on them, plus our clients user ID's. We need to check to see if user profiles are EQ to user passwords.

We have eight iSeries systems, with the same user ID's on them, plus our clients user ID's. We need to check to see if user profiles are EQ to user passwords. Would IBM API's QSYRUPWD and qsycupwd be used for this process? If so, do you have a sample program to look at?
To find the users with passwords the same as the profile, you simply have to run the Analyze Default Password (ANZDFTPWD) command. A spooled file report is produced that lists the users with default passwords.
