How to set non expiry password

Tomorrow Following security policies are to be set in the security file of one of our Server.

NUMBER_OF_LOGINS_ALLOWED=3
MIN_PASSWORD_LENGTH=8
PASSWORD_HISTORY_DEPTH=5
PASSWORD_MIN_UPPER_CASE_CHARS=1
PASSWORD_MIN_LOWER_CASE_CHARS=1
PASSWORD_MIN_DIGIT_CHARS=1
PASSWORD_MIN_SPECIAL_CHARS=1
PASSWORD_MAXDAYS=90
PASSWORD_WARNDAYS=7

As per the policy the password will expire in 90 days.

Can you tell me how do I set an account to not expire. Is the below command right

/usr/lbin/modprpw -l -m mintm=0,exptm=0,expwarn=0,lftm=0 "userid"

The System is trusted.

Shalom,

I think the command should work.

sam has a really cute feature.

Do the transaction in sam and then look at the sam command log and you will see if your command above will work. After doing anything in sam there is a command view feature that will let you know what sam did to complete the transaction.

This is an excellent learning tool.

Or simply run a test.

Re: How to set non expiry password

Thanks Steven ..But I really need a confirmation that this command will work since this is a production system and the IDS which I dont want to expire are oracle and Application ID's.

I dont want anything to go wrong .. Kindly confirm
