View Full Version : Client Access and Windows 2000 Password
01-01-1995, 02:00 AM
I just installed Client Acess Express with the Latest Service pack on new Windows 2000 machines. When I installed Express I told it to use the Windows Userid and password for signing into the AS/400. When I try this, I get a message saying that the password is not valid for the AS/400. I have verified that the Userid and password that I use to sign into windows 2000 and the AS/400 are the same. I have tried using upper and lowercase to no avail. Any suggestions as to why this does not work?

Max, Is it possible that the password hasn't changed for years? There was a change to passwords in some way that was implemented around V3R1. The password had to be changed after that release was installed so that the user profile could be used by CA. If this might be the case, change the 400 password to anything else, then change it back. It will then work. Bill

Thanks for the response Bill. However, these are new userid's just created. I have also tried it with existing one's with the same result.

The answer to this is to call program cwblogon.exe. It has 3 parameters, the first one is the system name the second is /u username and the third is /p and the password. You can add this to your registry under H_key Local machine/software/microsoft/windows/current version/run. Just add a key that looks like "C:Program FilesIBMClient Accesscwblogon.exe" Sxxxxxxx /u xxxxx /p xxxxxx and that writes the client access stuff to the cache. When you go to call a 5250 session, it retrieves the info from the cache and gets you a signon screen without having to type a password. The only caveat with this is you have your password in the registry unencrypted. Also you take the option in CA express to prompt for password when needed, not the option to use the windows userid and password.
