Re: question about account

PS means that the account is password protected.

08/21/10 means the account will expire on that day.

91 means it will expire every 91 days.

7 means that you will be warned the password will expire 7 days prior to its expiration.

Re: question about account

Patrick -

Thank you for the input. Is the date implies the expiration date or the date the passwd was last changed?

Thanks Again

From my previous reply:

08/21/10 means the account will ***expire*** on that day.

Re: question about account

patrick -

I have a user say accountname - passwd detail is as i gave above - they would like to know when the passwd will expire date/time?

is it possible to extract this info using any option - or they should calculate as the info you mentioned in the last post.is there a way to find out when the system will trigger the passwd expiration message

Thanks Patrick

logins(1m) -x says the date it was last changed. (Was that the command you used?)

>Is there a way to find out when the system will trigger the password expiration message

Is the system trusted? You won't get a warning using the default.

Re: question about account

logins(1m) -a will tell you when it expires but that's only available for trusted.
Otherwise you get: -1 000000

So 08/21/10 91 7 means:
Reset on Aug 21, 13 weeks until it expires and 7 days is the minimum days between changes.

Note: Unless you have trusted, you won't see "08/21/10", since that's not a Wed or Thu.
