You can use this statement to set the option to restrict words in a password:

UPDATE DBC.SysSecDefaults SET PasswordRestrictWords = ‘Y’ ;

If you enter a value other than Y or N, 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
