Question:  

What is the GSO PSWDJES option?

Answer: 

The GSO PSWD PSWDJES option effects batch jobs only.

This option defines if invalid passwords will be counted in a batch environment.

When PSWDJES is set in the GSO PSWD record, invalid passwords will be counted towards the invalid password limit (PASSLMT) in a single day.

For example if you submit a batch job that has a valid logonid but the password is invalid, the PSWD-VIO field of the batch logonid will be incremented. If you specify NOPSWDJES, then invalid passwords are not counted for batch jobs.

Additional Information: 

Details on the PSWDJES field can be found in the CA ACF2 for z/OS Administration Guide, Chapter 14: Maintaining Global System Options Records section 'Password Maintenance and Support (PSWD)'.
