Re: Password expiration/aging?

Our 0.6 to 0.7 upgrade script included the following:

/usr/heimdal/sbin/kadmin -l mod --attributes=pwchange- 
based,disallow-forwardable,disallow-postdated kadmin/ 

Most of the extras were just me being neurotic, but I think at least  
one of them was needed for Solaris kpasswd compatibility.  I did the  
same thing to both principals.
