MySQL is out of the question, unfortunately, as we don't have MySQL in our environment and I can't get approval to install it either :( Any other suggestion?
Joe BTW, great doc, I can use this for personal use though or other places :) -----Original Message----- From: Michael Bowe [mailto:mbowe@;pipeline.com.au] Sent: Friday, November 01, 2002 3:33 PM To: 'Vchkpw' Subject: RE: [vchkpw] Password Aging If you use the vpopmail with the mysql backend, then you could add an additional column to the table so that each user has a field that stores the date their password was last changed Then you could crontab a daily script that scans the SQL looking for users with old passwords Perhaps email them a warning at 5 months, and then lock them out at 6 months. The lockout could be achieved by setting the NO_POP, NO_WEBMAIL etc flags on their account That way their mailbox will still receive mail, but they just wont be able to pick it up I have some basic info showing how you can setup vpopmail w/mysql backend at http://www.pipeline.com.au/staff/mbowe/isp/vpopmail-mysql.htm Michael. > -----Original Message----- > From: Joe Oaks [mailto:trell@;trells.com] > Sent: Saturday, 2 November 2002 9:49 AM > To: Vchkpw > Subject: [vchkpw] Password Aging > > > Is there a way to implement password aging? > Our users need to change there passwords at least twice a year. > > Currently we use password aging on the /etc/passwd file but are > going to migrate to the vpasswd and need this same functionality. > > Thanks in advance. > > Joe >
