How to fix this SIM defect for special character?

Hi,

 

We developed a script to modify the user password on all servers simultaneously. But today, I failed to modify the password of one account through HPSIM because of the special character “#" in the password. Error message said the password could not contain special characters like “&|#><” through HPSIM.

 

I believe this is constrains with HPSIM, because I can use this special character in the password when using CLI mode.

 

Can anyone share the experience and solutions about how to fix this issue?

 

Thanks in advance!!

HP-UX specifically warns about using "#" and "@" for passwords.

HP didnt follow Microsofts character standard. MS specifically says that admin accounts aka priviledge accounts should be a different account like with " ! "

 

SIM does not reconized " ! " when I SSO from SIM to OA, iLO, SMH.

 

It does successfully work using my normal account.
