Description of problem:
I noticed this on the 7.3 and 8.0 Releases of the OS. I can go to properties
for a new user (uid 500 on up) and setup a password aging requirement. After I
exit, settings are correctly set in the /etc/shadow file. However, when I
return to the same place in the configuration program, password aging for the
same user will be unchecked, and 0's in the 'time' boxes. If one was to
actually click 'OK' at that point, /etc/shadow would reflect that state.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Add new user
2. Select that user, go to properties
3. Go to Password Info tab
4. Check the 'Enable password expiration' checkbox
5. I set the four fields (top to bottom) to 0, 7, 7, 30
6. Click OK, then exit
7. Re-enter program, go look at password aging settings fot same user.
I don't know if this is the desired behavior. It did not act this way in 7.2
I will submit as 'Normal' only because it was "okay" in 7.2
This was verified on a fresh install of 7.3 (just in case I broke it)
Should be fixed in redhat-config-users-1.1.1-5. Thanks for your report. QA,
Reproduced steps as stated by Jeff. Verified fixed.
Seems to work correctly on Phoebe 8.0.94 with "redhat-config-users-1.1.5-6".
Thanks for the testing. Resolving as Rawhide. Feel free to resolve as Rawhide
yourself if you've verified that the fix works.
