How to change Password Aging in Sol-10?

Hello folks

I would like to know how to chnage the password aging for a user account only?

I would like to set it to 30 days intervals. And also, I would like the system to warn of password expiration 10 days before password expires.

How would I do that in Solaris 10 please?

thanks in advance.
