The Question is:
We have the sysuaf pwdmix flag switched on and have CSWS installed. I switched
on (openvms)user authentication for the apache (csws) webserver. When I try to
logon through a webpage with a lowercase password it refuses to let me in.
When I set the passwor
d to an uppercase password the CSWS grants me access. Is this expected
behaviour or a flaw within CSWS? Is the combination pwdmix and CSWS
impossible? Do you know if there's a solution?
The Answer is :
mod_auth is case-sensitive for usernames, passwords, and groups
(as is expected with Apache), while mod_auth_openvms is case-blind.
If you are using mod_auth_openvms and are seeing this, please
contact the support center with details of the failure, of the
particular Apache (or CSWS) release and the OpenVMS ECO status.
