I can't get a user's 'change' or 'expire' time to have any effect on his
I used chpass(1) as root to modify the 'change' field for a password entry:
#Changing user database information for testuser.
Encrypted password: <snipped for this e-mail>
Uid [#]: 1003
Gid [# or name]: 1003
Change [month day year]: July 01, 2000
Expire [month day year]:
Home directory: /home/testuser
Full Name: test user
Sure enough, /etc/passwd shows the change. Pasting from vipw:
However, when I login as that user, I am not prompted to change my password.
962438400 is Sat Jul 1 01:00:00 PDT 2000. My system time as I type this
is Thu Jul 6 05:55:53 PDT 2000. I also tried 1 second instead of
962438400 by manually vipw-ing.
I have the same experience if I use chpass(1) to change the user's 'expire'
time. Same if I change both ;) I am not using Kerberos or NIS.
What am I missing?
