Hi Rick,

If the password expired through normal TSM password expiration (or you
forced it by updating the node with FORCEPWRESET=YES), then generation of
a new password should work correctly, regardless of how you you start the
client. Of course, you can try this with a test node to confirm for
yourself.

Best regards,

Andy

The only dumb question is the one that goes unasked.
The command line is your friend.
