Well I tried the following:
pdbedit --pwd-must-change-time="1419120000" username
which should have set the passwords to be changed in the year 2014.
When I do a:
pdbedit -L -v username
it still shows that my password must change in about 40 days, but
changed the 'kick off day' up to the year 2014. Do I need to set the X
flag? I am not sure what that is going to do if they passwords must
change next month, but the X flag is set so that they do not expire. It
kind of contradicts itself.
Thanks again for any help.
