Change password with C program.

Hi

I need to write a program, in C, that can change passwords. However, my customer has enhanced security enabled on all his systems.

It would be appreciacted if you can give me some hints on where I can start; documents, best practice, anything.

Hope to hear from you soon.

Re: Change password with C program.

There's information in the Security guide (prior to V5.1B) or Security programming guide (V5.1B). You probably also want to look at the information on SIA in the administration part of the Security guide (prior to V5.1B) or the Security Administration guide (V5.1B).

The routine you want is sia_chg_password().
This routine will work with either Enhanced or Base security.
