Issue/Introduction

If we want to get to history of 5+, the INFOSTG side, is the password profile record only created at the time of a ID is getting to 5th password history? 

Environment

Release : 16.0

Component : CA ACF2 for z/OS

Resolution

The password record changes only come into play when there is a password change. Whenever a password is changed, the older passwords are bumped down in the list of previous records.  If four already exist, the fifth password change will cause a profile record entry to be created and the passwords will roll.
