Description Max Valianskiy 1999-12-18 05:31:43 EST
I tryed to enable minimum password age to prevent users from changeing
passwords too often (I really need this), but this does not work, passwd
changes password
as it was before I set limits.

[maxcom@cave maxcom]$ chage -l maxcom
Minimum:	7
Maximum:	31
Warning:	7
Inactive:	35
Last Change:		Dec 18, 1999
Password Expires:	Jan 18, 2000
Password Inactive:	Feb 22, 2000
Account Expires:	Never

[maxcom@cave maxcom]$ cat /etc/pam.d/passwd
auth       required	/lib/security/pam_pwdb.so shadow nullok md5
account    required	/lib/security/pam_pwdb.so
password   required	/lib/security/pam_cracklib.so retry=3
password   required	/lib/security/pam_pwdb.so use_authtok md5 shadow

I seems that passwd does not tryes to verify password minimum change time
at all.
