I set a user, 'testus1' to have his password change every 100 days with a 12 days warning.
chage testus1 -M '100' -W '12'
I then entered chage testus1
to check if the changes are made.
There's this field called 'Password Inactive [-1]
' . Do I have to change this to 1 for the changes to be active ?
From the man page, "Passing the number -1 as MAX_DAYS will remove checking a password's validity. " .
Not sure if the -1 in the 'Password Inactive [-1]
' affects the changes made.
