The acceptable values for the PasswordDigits parameter are:

  • Y = Digits are allowed
  • N = Digits are not allowed
  • R = At least one digit is required
The PasswordDigits value is not case sensitive.

If you enter a value other than Y, N, or R, the system reverts to the default value and writes an error message to the event log:

3699: SysSecDefaults table has an invalid character value in a char column
You cannot use the digits zero through 9 as the first character in a password unless the entire password is enclosed in double quotation marks, for example:
password=”78password”
