Actually, no. The smbpasswd file stores the last change
time of each password, therefore a global "password expiry"
time (ie. how long a password would last) could be an 
smb.conf parameter. The difference between last changed
time and local time would be compared with this and a
"password expired" error returned if it was greater.


Buying an operating system without source is like buying
a self-assembly Space Shuttle with no instructions.
