Dear FreeBsd gurus, I have a problem concerning users password and authentication policies. The goal is
1)make freebsd to lock users after 3 unsuccessful login attempts,
2)force users to change their passwords every 90 days

I've done such changes in Linux distros, with various PAM modules.But in Freebsd it seems that i need to use login.conf file. Here I made necessary changes in that file:
............. :login-retries=1:\
>>>>>>> Then I made the cap_mkdb /etc/login.conf , and everything went normal, no error messages, but after adding a test user I see no changes in the master.passwd file.
The fields which are reserved for password aging parameters are 0:0
test:$1$F9yf.PuK$xqIsGEgK3MexpPZ4UBav0.:1001:1001::0:0:User &:/home/test:/bin/sh

And the locking point does not work either, e.g. no matter how many times I input wrong password, I'm still able to login. :( I cannot understand what I'm doing wrong, and what should be done solve this issues? I'm not an expert Freebsd administration, so any comments and suggestions are welcome.

Thank You
Khachatur Shahinyan
