Use SAM to look at the user's password restrictions and if there are no specific settings, look at the system's password policy for aging.

Hi,

 

For password policy....you need to configure /etc/default/security file with below parameters.

 

PASSWORD_HISTORY_DEPTH=3

PASSWORD_PASSWORD_LENGTH=8

PASSWORD_MIN_UPPER_CASE_CHARS=5

PASSWORD_MIN_LOWER_CASE_CHARS=3

PASSWORD_MIN_DIGIT_CHARS=2

PASSWORD_MIN_SPECIAL_CHARS=1

 

Thanks & Regards,
