I've did a google search on this, and an archive search. For an extra
measure of completeness, I scanned the handbook.
Here's the question:
I currently make my users reset their passwords every 90 days.
However, nothing stops them from reusing the same password. passwd
happily allows users to reuse a password. Since that's the case,
what's the point of enabling password expiration, since most users
will probably reuse their password (after all, it's convenient to do
Is there a way to change login.conf to force unique passwords? Or
would I have to wrap passwd in a shell script of some sort?
Thanks in advance for your help!
