Re: Minimum Password Change Interva

You can use the 'passwd_min_change_time' option of usermod. Refer to 'usermod' man page for more details.

You may also use the dxaccounts application to do this. Select a user and Modify -> Security Controls -> "Password Controls" tab -> "Minimum Change Time" field.

Hi,

You can use

usermod -x passwd_min_change_time=n username

where n is number of days passed before user can change password.

hope this will help

And of course you have to have 'enhanced' security enabled for any of these features to work.

First you need to be running Enhanced Security. See the Security Administration manual.
