SLES9 with YP, password expiration and ssh

Has anyone gotten password expiration to work in a SLES9 yp environment while using ssh?

On the yp client passwd -S reports proper information and I know it works with rlogin, but we don't like to use r* services. When using ssh, you do not get a warning that your password is about to expire and when it has expired, ssh still lets you in.

I'm thinking this is a pam issue, but where to start? pam.d/login and pam.d/ssh are the same with the exception of securettys which doesn't apply to ssh.
yeah

SLES9 is sold by SuSE, it may have support, so please call up SuSE support and ask.
Debian GNU/Linux for the Enterprise! Ask HP ...

Hi Brendan,

There is a module which can be used for the same functionality which is "pam_pwdb.so".

Beside this, you can go through the PDF doc that I've attached. It will provide you with the information for all the modules used in PAM.

In regards to the comment regarding calling SuSE for support, we already pay a lot of money to HP for SuSE support. However I can always re-evaluate where we get our SuSE support from if you'd like.
yeah
