RE: recommendations for password management tool



Use the native passwd tool... according to the man page:

       -x     This will set the maximum password lifetime,  in  days,  if  the
              user’s  account  supports password lifetimes.  Available to root
              only.


for u in `cut -d: -f1 /etc/passwd`; do
  passwd -x 90 $u
done

I'm looking for a user password management tool that will allow me to alter 
sp_max in /etc/shadow, the number of days before a change is required in the 
password. I have the set to 180, and I want to set it to 90 for all my users. 
I've googled but came up empty. Webmin (which uses usermin) doesn't do this, as 
far as I can tell.

Thanks!
Bill Tangren
