Where do I set authmode?

I'm sorry. This really shouldn't be a new question, but I haven't gotten the the "ask a related question" feature to work.

Among the responses I got to a previous question was the following;

You can avoid being asked for your own password with "authmode=role"

I could swear I got this to work before. Now I'm getting an error when I try setting this with the chuser command.

3004-692 Error changing "authmode" to "role" : Attribute is invalid.

I've got this feeling that the answer I get is going to make me feel really foolish.

it's not a user property but a role property, so instead of trying "chuser" change this attribute in /etc/security/roles from INVOKER to NONE or ROLE (should be equivalent, but I'm not sure whether the newer AIXs still accept ROLE).

Yes. On the version of AIX that I'm running, 6.1, the value 'NONE' or 'INVOKER' is acceptible: ex: chrole auth_mode=NONE <role>
