Password expiry policy update for Edge Routers

NetFoundry edge routers have a default password expiry policy of 365 days since the last password reset. Responding to the feedback and request from customers, the password expiry policy is being reset to " no expiry". An update will be pushed to all customer edge routers to update the password expiry policy to "no expiry" on 1st September 2022.


For customer who would like to set a password expiration policy:

$ sudo chage -m 1 -M 365 ziggy

Executing the above command will let the password expire in 365 days from the date when the password was last changed. You can choose when you want the password to expire by altering the variable "365". The "1" in the command above denotes number of times a password can be changed in a day. 

To view the current password policy on ERs:

$ sudo chage -l ziggy

Sample Output:

Last password change : Apr 14, 2022
Password expires : never
Password inactive : never
Account expires : never
Minimum number of days between password change : 0
Maximum number of days between password change : 99999
Number of days of warning before password expires : 7
