Actually two issues on this subject. Migrating to a new system. First,
I want to set all accounts so when the user logs in the first time, he
is asked to set a new password.
Second, I need to have passwords expire and require a change every 3 months.
As I understand it, First, I need to set "Password must change: " to
'0'. For the second one, I need to set the maximum password age.
I am using the tdbsam password backend. The command I found to reset
the password was "pdbedit --pwd-must-change-time=0 -u <user>". When I
run this, I get a response of "<user>:507:<Real Name>". However, after
looking at it with "pdbedit -L -v <user>" Nothing changes.
I also cannot find anywhere to change the password maximum age.
