Both passwords and passphrases can be used at the same time.
If you have a user-written program that links to RHDCSNON to perform signon it needs to be reviewed to increase the password field to 100. An additional parameter is also needed for RHDCSNON when using passphrases, see documentation section Invoking the SIGNON Task from Programs for more details.
