Component : SYSVIEW

Resolution

SYSVIEW Release 16.0 supports the use of mixed-case password and passphrase for logon authentication, and has been available since release 11.0.

SYSVIEW code determines if a phrase was used based on the length of data entered in the 'Password' field on the logon screen. Anything longer than 8-bytes is considered to be a phrase.
