Reg. /etc/auth/system/default file.

If I set the u_exp field to 7776000 - it will expire the password after 90 days. If I want to generate a warning message about the password expiry which is the parameter to be updated and what will be its value if the warning has to be given from 80 days onwards.

Also, what is the parameter t_maxtries? and how is it different from u_maxtries??

Re: Reg. /etc/auth/system/default file.

See "man default" entry for "d_pw_expire_warning".

See "man ttys" entry for "t_maxtries".
