Description brief discussion of user and account passwords.

Account passwords may be used to limit the access to an account or to limit access to the system.

"md" (account) passwords are stored in encrypted form in attribute 7 of items within the "mds" file. md passwords are assigned at the time an md is created and can be changed by editing the "mds" file from the dm md at any time by a user with level 2 system privileges (sys2).

Encrypted user passwords are stored in individual users file items in attribute 7.

Both the user and the account passwords may be multi-valued.

Passwords are case-sensitive, regardless of the state of case-sensitivity on the system!

If a password is specified, it is requested at logon. If an incorrect password is entered, the user is denied access to the system. If the proper password is entered, the user is then requested to enter the name of the md to be accessed. If that md requires a password, the user is prompted for it.

The user's password can be changed by editing the users file in the dm account through UP. Passwords may also be assigned or changed by issuing the following command sequence:

u mds account.name password
