Password Expiration Warning

Hello All,

I already have Password expiration warning time set in Password aging policy section on my HP-UNIX 11i system and now I have to set different password expiration warning time for some of the users on the same system.

Suppose: System wide Password expiration warning time is set to "X" days in Pasword Ageing policy and now I want to set the password expiration warning time to "Y" days for some of the users and not all on same HP-UNIX 11i system.

1)Can I do this?
2)If Yes, how?
3)If I do that will that effect the System wide password Expiration warning time?

Cheers

AmitJ.

Shalom Amit,

The system aging policy is most easily modified from the sam/smh interface.

To alter already created users, you will want to run passwd against these users with the -x and -y parameters set. Best thing to do is a while loop type script.

Changing an individual user password expiration policy has no effect on global policy.
