Non-expiring password for user account expires everyday!
 
I have a user account for Oracle on a Redhat Enterprise Linux 6.8 server. It is supposed to have a non-expiring password, therefore I have disabled password ageing using
chage -I -1 -m 0 -M 99999 -E -1 oracle
I double check to make sure that password says never expire.
However the next day, I see that the password has expired and the cron jobs are failing.Output of chage -l is
Last password change : password must be changed
Password expires : password must be changed
Password inactive : password must be changed
Account expires : never
Minimum number of days between password change : 0
Maximum number of days between password change : 90
Number of days of warning before password expires : 14
Password does meet requirements.
I would appreciate some help. Thanks
