Not really sure why you want to force password changes after 300 seconds but
its up to you. I would make sure then minimum age is less that your maximum
age, this will likely stop it working..

You need to import export after making policy changes depending on your

Its all clearly documented here;

I try to force users to change password once a given period using his

#pdbedit -P "maximum password age" -C 300 

It works only for "new" users (users created after first first launch of
this command), "old" users are not affected, passwords doesn't expire. How
to do his for "old" users?

I would be pleased for your help.
