Setting up Passwd expiration details


I just tried enabling password expiration for one of the users I added on my computer. But it doesn't seem to work for me.

I am using RH8.0. I am enabling this using redhat-config-users utlity by selecting Groups and clicking 'Enable password expiration' checkbox. Once I fill up the desired data and save, It shows blank I open it next time i.e. it doesn't seem to save the entered data.

Can anyone tell me what is this happening?

Thanks & regards,

I know how to set expiration time for password using 'chage' which changes the corresponding user entry in /etc/shadow but I wanted to know whether /how can I do it using redhat-config-users.
