In V6R1, the QPWDRULES system value was created to give you more control of how a user profile password is constructed. In the prior release, a number of different system values offered this ability (e.g., QPWDMAXLEN controlled the maximum length of a password, QPWDRQDDGT enforced that there be a digit character, etc.). Having all password rules under the hood of one system value makes things a little tidier and simplifies management of password rules, but you can still use the old system values if you wish by specifying the *PWDSYSVAL parameter on the QPWDRULES system value.
