what is the range of inactivity days in shadow

Dear all,

please tell me if there is any limit of the inactivity field in shadow passwd file.

 

Is it a value between 0-443 or somethig else?

Thanks.

 

Regards

Kang

Re: what is the range of inactivity days in shadow

Hi:

 

A look at the manpages for 'shadow(4)' would take you to 'security(4)'.  There you would find that there is no limit to the value that can be defined for INACTIVITY_MAXDAYS.

 

Regards!
