pam_krb5 cannot offer to change expired password
Last modified: 2014-06-18 04:46:35 EDT
pam_krb5 doesn't allow the user to change an expired password. Instead an expired password always results in an authentication failure.

... if the KDC's database has been configured so that attempts to obtain password-changing credentials with the forwardable flag are disallowed. It's allowed by default for better compatibility with multiple clients, which is why we haven't run into this before.
