Re: How set password expiry date

Hi,

 

You can use command.

 

passwd -n 7 -x 70 -w 14 username

 

This will not allow the user to change its password within 7days, maximum validity of password 70 days and give a warning to change password before 14days of expiring.

You can change the parameter according to your needs.

Re: How set password expiry date

Hi ,

 

Its ok.

-w will work only when /etc/shadow is enable.

 

You can check now user status by command

passwd -s username
