> [...] a Tru64 server [...]

Not a very detailed description of anything.

sizer -v

I know nothing, but the "man" page for
"usermod" does suggest a possible
explanation:

[...]
The following extended_option attributes are available only on systems
running in enhanced security mode:

passwd_expire_time=n
[...]

Password aging is only available when security is set to "ENHANCED", not with "BASE" security.

# rcmgr get SECURITY

See manpage for prpasswd to see what's possible with enhanced (C2) security.

have your checked
/bin/passwd -n (Password min days) -w (warn days -x (max days)
It's kind of fun to do the impossible

Regarding previous reply...

Tru64 passwd does NOT have -n, -w or -x arguments you are probably referring to another flavor of Unix.
