We use ACF2 and the Password history number defaults to 4. Our security group supports ACF2 on two separate mainframes. On one mainframe, you can start re-using passwords after 4 different passwords have been used. On the other system, we can never re-use a password. The ACF2 GSO records appear to be exact and I can't see anywhere in TPX that would control this. Any ideas?
Does TPX have any control over password history or reuse of previous passwords?
TPX does things like password retries or Suppress Pswds in Memory, but we don't have anything to do with password history or reuse. This is under the control of your external security system (ACF2, TSS, RACF).
