  • 1.  PSWDENCT = XDES PSWD ENCRYPTION ALGORITHM UTILIZED

    I have two questions on PSWDENCT = XDES.
    1. The way I understand this is that the "X"  in XDES is equal to a number (multiplier). How can we check what is that currently set to? Is there any command that can show that?
    2. Also, what impact would there be if we change this from XDES to AES2 (AES256)? 

    Thanks and Regards,
    Shrishti
