Turning Off Password Privilege Expiration in NIS+

To turn off or deactivate password privilege expiration, you must use the nistbladm command to place a -1 in this field. For example, to turn off privilege expiration for the user huck, you would type:

station1% nistbladm -m `shadow=n:n:n:n:n:-1:n' [name=huck],passwd.org_dir

Or you can use the nistbladm command reset the expiration date to some day in the future by entering a new number of days in the n6 field.
