Question:

Will CA Top Secret accept and process a command such as the following: TSS ADDTO(acid) PASSWORD(password) PHRASE('this is a phrase') ? In other words, can I specify both PASSWORD and PHRASE on an administrative command, and will CA Top Secret accept/process both, or, are the two deemed to be mutually exclusive? The documentation doesn't mention anything, therefore, I'm assuming both are allowed/both will be processed?

Answer:

Yes, you can specify both on one command without problems. They are mutually exclusive and independent of each other.
