AS400 Mid Range/Keep reusing same user password


How can I wipe out user password when it expires so the same one can be used repeatedly? I have workers out in manufacturing who can't remember more than this password.

A person with security-level authorization can set a password expiration interval option on the user profile so that the password does not expire, and so retain the same password without being required to change it. The option that should be set is: PWDEXPITV(*NOMAX)

Otherwise, the system will require the expired password to be changed.
