The Question is:
My VAX account does not have any security previledge. Is there any command that
I can issue to check whether I have successfully changed my account password?
The Answer is :
You could simply try to log in specifying the new password, via a DCL
command such as SET HOST 0 or via DECnet task-to-task communications,
etc. From a program, you could retrieve and confirm the password via
calls to $getuai and $hash_password.
The OpenVMS password mechanisms are synchronous, and return only when
the password has been successfully updated.
