Description:

TSS CRE(acid) NAME('name') DEPT(dept) PASSWORD(NOPW) TYPE(USER) was issued. When listing the ACID with DATA(PASSWORD), it shows:

ACCESSORID = acid      NAME       = name
PASSWORD   =           EXPIRES    = mm/dd/dd  INTERVAL = 090

Why is the list output showing an EXPIRES date and INTERVAL value?

Solution:

Just giving an acid NOPW does not automatically make it non expiring. To make a NOPW acid be non expiring, specify PASS(NOPW,0) on the TSS CREATE or TSS REPLACE command.

Otherwise, it will use the default password expiration interval (from the PWEXP control option) and after that interval expires, the password will need to be changed.
