Disable Password Aging on Trusted System

Apparently my previous co-worker left me a going away present = Our batch account passwords are expired! I need a command line arg to 'turn off' password aging policy....

Dan,

Try "modprpw -V" - see "man modprpw".

Re: Disable Password Aging on Trusted System

Thanks for the feedback, but the "-V" option only resets the clock. I was really hoping to find one simple command to 'disable' the policy of password aging without going into SAM.

If you're using a relatively recent version of HP-UX, the passwd command can set the aging value. Use something like: passwd -x 0 batch_user. The zero should turn off aging.

Hi,

Password aging could be disabled using
# modprpw -m mintm=0,lftm=0,exptm=0,expwarn=0

I guess the same command is ran when you use SAM to disable it.
