|Applies To||RSA ACE/Server Administration API|
RSA ACE/Server creates use passwords (via host or remote admin) with a death date of current time + 3 years
RSA ACE/Server Administration API can set the password lifetime of a new user to up to 10 years
|Issue||How to set RSA ACE/Server user password lifetime to greater than 3 years|
|Resolution||The following example RSA ACE/Server Administration API TCL script demonstrates this concept:|
#connect to Server
puts [Sd_ApiInit "" "" 1]
#add user tuser, password "1234" with 10 year lifetime
set tokSerial [Sd_AssignPassword user test tuser /bin/sh 1234 3653 0]
puts "Created password token $tokSerial"
NOTE: password lifetime is a different concept than the System parameter "passwords expire in". The System parameter controls how long a password can be used until the user is requested to change it during an authentication. Password lifetime, on the other hand, defines how long before a password must be updated by administrator action.
