Issue/Introduction

Description:

CA Top Secret Control Option 'PASSCHAR' is not working under TSO.

When changing their password through the TSO signon panel with a password that contains a character in the PASSCHAR list receives the following error message:

IKJ56464I You have entered unacceptable characters in the highlighted field(s)

Solution:

The IKJ56464I error message is a TSO error message and not a CA Top Secret error message.

TSO is restricting the use of the password character and not CA Top Secret.

PASSCHAR will not override TSO password restrictions.
