password expiration /etc/shadow
I have this user on my /etc/shadow:
The 5th column is blank. Does it mean the user has no password expiration.
Thanks in advance for any idea you will give.
does passwd -S mysql show anything different in that field ?
Odd that it would be empty. 99999 is the normal entry for a password that doesn't expire.
An empty field giving a undefined value to expiration date could be interpreted as non-expiring, but it is certainly not the standard way to do this.
Then again, if mysql is set in /etc/passwd to have no login shell, and is anyway not supposed to be used for logging in, then the expiration date might be irrelevant anyway.
can you please produce the output of passwd -S mysql ... just like the gentleman said above and we'll proceed from there.
Btw do you use mySQL on this box? or is this just a curiousity?
