Hi,

this is a task for DSPAUDJRNE, the "Display Audit Journal Entries" command.

Here is the description: http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/html/as400/v4r5/ic2979/info/cl/dspaudjr.htm

Using the audit journal is the best way, as WMP points out.  You need *SECURITY in your security auditing levels. The audit journal will have entries with journal code T and entry type PW.

If you do not have journalling set up, you can alternatively use the history log to look for message CPF1393 which is sent when a user profile is disabled. It accepts a date/time range:
DSPLOG LOG(QHST)                                
       PERIOD((*AVAIL *BEGIN) (*AVAIL *END))    
       OUTPUT(*PRINT)                          
       MSGID(CPF1393)                          

Sample output for History Log
:
MSGID    SEV MSG TYPE                                                                                                              
CPF1393  70  INFO         Subsystem QINTER disabled user profile LLOHAN on device QPADEV0004.                                      
                      QBASE      QSYS       189059                   11/02/01 18:27:11                                            
CPF1393  70  INFO         Subsystem QINTER disabled user profile CSHEEN on device QPADEV000Z.                                      
                      QBASE      QSYS       189059                   11/02/25 19:46:02                                            

Hope this helps!

Ok unluckly I have not set the journal
but the second command works,
it says that the user has been disabled when was active this job:
QZSOSIGN
does it indacate that was a 'log on session'?
or it could be an automatic job?
Like a windows batch which tries to update data from as400?
I'm trying to identify the origin, if it's a user which is wrong password,
or it's a windows job which is wrong it

The audit journal would be the best place to track this down. It contains more information about the problem, such as IP address of that the signon attempt (depending on your release level).
