Password change at first login

Hi

I have to create accounts for all users on the new server. How can I set a standard password for everyone initially and then force them to change it at the first login? The system is Tru64 5.1B. I have tried passwd -f but that did not seem to work.

Thanks in advance

On dxaccounts, Goto View -> Local Templates.
select the "Security" button and under the "Password Controls" section, select the "Force Password Change at Next Login" checkbox. This will force all the new users to change their password during next login.

So, when creating a new user, just set a default password.

Forgot to mention that the system should be running on enhanced security (C2) to accomplish this.

Thanks for that, but is there any way of achieving this if you are not using enhanced security please?


Thanks again

Re: Password change at first login

another way is by using a login script calling passwd and deleting the entry afterwards automatically. A few lines of codes...
Help() { FirstReadManual(urgently); Go_to_it;; }
