LOGIN.DEFS defaults


can anyone post the default file contents of login.defs for rhel 5.7 and 5.8

i ran into a odd situation and need to do some digging. recently some UID's on some systems had their password expire (90days). seems to only be the case on v5.8, but i am not 100% if someone changed login.defs or the defaults changed between v5.7 to v5.8

thnx

I don't have a 5.8 box handy but UID_MIN should still be 500, you can verify the shadow-utils package (rpm -V) to confirm that it has been modified or reinstall shadow-utils (yum reinstall ..) to get the original back.

Sorry, did you mean user accts or system accts ?
