You need to enable enhanced security, that is done through sysman secconfig.

After that, you can enable password policies.

Please check the Security Guide available at the tru64 Unix documentation page. You can use dxaccounts to set the password policies.

Also, be aware that setting Advanced Security has side-effects beyond just password aging. Study the references for this change carefully before you enable it, as it has restrictions that may surprise you.
