Reporting password status

Reporting password status

In the Reports Manager, select Password Status from the Reports menu.

The report selections correspond to the three stages of password lifetime:

The ``soon to expire'' report lists accounts with passwords due to expire within a week. Although an impending expiration is not actually an error, this report allows you to identify users who wait until the last moment to change passwords.

NOTE: The default account configuration files (.cshrc, .profile, .kshrc, and so forth) automatically execute the prwarn(C) utility at login time to warn users about impending password expiration.

See ``Controlling password expiration'' for more information.
