Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 4406
chage not Y2K compliant - does not recognize 4-digit years
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:51 EDT
The "chage" account maintenance tool does not accept
four-digit-year dates when setting the expiry date.
When entered on the command line, four-digit-year dates are
quietly ignored. When entered interactively, an error is
displayed and the change is not made.
Also, an "expires" value of -1 (never) cannot be entered.
