We are testing Samba PDC (2.2.2) for running in a production environment on
AIX. We need a function to set a user password timeout. Is there something
in the 2.2.2 Code (maybe hardcoded). From my W2K Client it looks like 42
days, but I don't have time to wait 6 weeks.
I found a mail on samba-ntdom from simon at (June 13th
2001) with code for implementation of "user password time". Are there plans
to implement it. This function is highly required!

Check out a new copy of head and see if it is fixed now.
Currently password expiration is hacked in to never flag the
user account as requiring a password change.

May need to wait to the HEAD cvs tree to sync with the anonymous
CVS tree.
