OS version - XUBUNTU 11.10
I created a user account and am trying to setup password aging and expiry notification. It just doesn't appear to be working. The account is set to expire today (Aug 6th) but not only is it not expired, I do not see any warning message either when I login under that user.
From what I gather the "chage" and "passwd -x" commands do the same thing. I've tried both. Here is the status of the account.
What am I doing wrong?
