Password Security Policy in DB2

P: n/a
Dear Friends

In db2, is it possible to put password security policy.

Like password must contain with all mixed characters (alphabets,
special characters, numerics) and password should not be same with
login id.

Is it possible to set up in DB2 Databases on windows.
Appreciate your help

Cheers:)

DB2 uses the operating system to authenticate userids and passwords. So
whatever password rules that the operating system can enforce will be apply.

Yes, DB2 for Linux, UNIX, and Windows runs on Windows 2000, XP Pro, and 2003
Server.

You can download a free copy of DB2 Express-C if you server has less than
4GB of memory and 2 CPUs or less (dual core CPUs count as 1 CPU each). DB2
Express-C lacks some features of DB2 ESE, primarily relating to data
warehousing, but other than that it has all the functions that most people
would need.

This free version of DB2 can be used for any development, testing, or
production use, but support is limited to the DB2 Express-C forum and new
distributions may not be released every time a new DB2 fixpack is released
for regular licensed versions.

Note that you can download V9.1 or 8.2.4.
