Re: passwd question

Hi Navin,

Perhaps you can find your answere here:

"The passwd(4) manpage documents:

Password aging is put in effect for a particular user if his encrypted
password in the password file is followed by a comma and a non-null
string of characters from the above alphabet. (Such a string must be
introduced in the first instance by a superuser.) This string defines
the "age" needed to implement password aging. "

Regards,

Jaime.
Work hard when the need comes out.

Re: passwd question

in version HP-UX 11iv1 ,as default password agins is disabled. You can check it with command:
# passwd -s user1
user1 PS

I think, in your case you have password aging enabled for 91 days. you re-change password without -n -x options will disable it.

# passwd karnax
