    Is there a way to change the password expiry frequency of accounts on SSG appliance to a longer period?

    Hi Abdus. You can change that by using the Linux command chage as follows:

     

    # chage -M 90 ssgconfig

     

    This will change the password expiration policy to 90 days. You can check that by using this command:

     

    # chage --list ssgconfig
