Is there a command which allows me to see a user’s Password status?
Yes, the ULIST command can display an User’s Password Status (PwStat) among other values.
Below shows a user ID that just had their password set and will need to reset the password when they log on.

For instance from a user that can manage everyone: VMSECURE ULIST userid *
(the 2nd parameter ‘*’ being the manager of the user id you are wanting to look at. If you know the manager id you could specify it instead of using the *.)
ULIST is very useful. You can REVIEW an entry there, do a MDSKSCAN, go to USER screens and other options.
The help for the ULIST command can be found on the WIKI here -
