how to apply /etc/default/secuity settings to all users

Hi Folkes,

I have changed the security option on the /etc/default/security for user access like password policy. How can i apply this settings to existing users in this machine.
# uname -a
HP-UX hostname B.11.31 U ia64 unlimited-user license.
# ls -l /etc/default/security
-r--r--r-- 1 bin bin 3503 Aug 6 10:36 /etc/default/security


Thanks ,
Hari.

Hi ..


You can use passwd -f:

-f Force user to change password upon next login by
expiring the current password.
