After changing the NEWPW Control Option minimun size setting from 7 to 8.
Can users that have 7 digits password keep it until the password expiration date?
The NEWPW(MIN=) control option is only enforced for the user
changing the password at signon time.
The users' current passwords will stay the same, regardless of whether
they are 8 characters or less. Those users with passwords less than
8 characters will still be able to signon with their current password.
The next time the user changes their password, the new minimum
length of 8 will be enforced.
