Overview#The set password-history DXServer Command sets the maximum number of entries to retain in the history. This prevents the user from re-using these passwords.

This command has the following format:
set password-history = number-passwords | 0;
- number-passwords - Specifies the maximum number of passwords to retain in the history.
- 0 - (Default) Disables this feature.
Notes From Observations#Appears DxPwdHistory is similar to pwdHistory however, the format is not known.
