How does BLANK/NOBLANK work with MINWORD when NOBLANK is set and MINWORD is greater than 1?  

Environment

Release : 16.0

Resolution

If the GSO PWHPHASE is set to NOBLANK and MINWORD is greater than 1 then no new password phrase will be able to be set or changed. With GSO PWHPHASE is set to NOBLANK and MINWORD(2), setting a password phrase with blanks or only one word will result in messages:

ACF00220 NEW PASSWORD PHRASE ERROR - BLANKS NOT ALLOWED
    or       
 ACF00220 NEW PASSWORD PHRASE ERROR - MINIMUM NUMBER OF WORDS   

For example:

ACF
change usrtest pwphrase(thisisatest)
ACF00220 NEW PASSWORD PHRASE ERROR - MINIMUM NUMBER OF WORDS

change usrtest pwphrase(this is a test) 
 ACF00220 NEW PASSWORD PHRASE ERROR - BLANKS NOT ALLOWED        

Note: If the GSO PWHPHASE is set to NOBLANK and MINWORD should not specify a value greater than 1, otherwise no new password phrase will be able to be set or changed.
