Issue/Introduction

Ran this JCL to encrypt the password for the Control Center

//XCOMENCR EXEC  PGM=XCOMENCR                             
//STEPLIB  DD    DISP=SHR,DSN=XCOMR12.CAI.CBXGLOAD   
//*                                                       
//*CEEOPTS  DD    DISP=SHR,DSN=CEEOPTS.DATASET                   
//*                                                       
//SYSIN01  DD  *                                          
PASSWORD=password                                        
//SYSOUT01 DD DISP=SHR,DSN=XCOM.PWDENCR.OUT(PWDEN)

and the generated encrypted passed is:

XCOM.PWDENCR.OUT(PWDEN)=D30F13D848E78C2D2C898B46D83235FEE7222AEADA1436FAF92326EFE51618FBF53527
