Re: Not able to change the password

This should be useful:

Also, check out the manpage of prpasswd(u_life) and usermod (passwd_lifetime) for more info.

Re: Not able to change the password

Use:

usermod -x password_lifetime=0 username
usermod -x grace_limit=1 username
Por que hacerlo dificil si es posible hacerlo facil? - Why do it the hard way, when you can do it the easy way?
