The ID that will be used by a session on the PC to sign on to the IBM i. It must exist on the IBM i. It is stored encrypted.

After pressing Enter, the data will be stored on file. To be usable, it must be exported to the PC using the 8.1.4 Export System Definitions facility.

Note: If the IBM i password is configured to have long passwords, the maximum length is 128 and it is also case sensitive.
