Fix Recommendation

To configure SLES for vRealize to enforce a "60" day or less maximum password age, edit the file "/etc/login.defs" and add or correct the following line. Replace [DAYS] with the appropriate amount of days.

# sed -i "/^[^#]*PASS_MAX_DAYS/ c\PASS_MAX_DAYS 60" /etc/login.defs

The DoD requirement is "60" days or less (Greater than zero, as zero days will lock the account immediately).

Check Contents

To check that SLES for vRealize enforces a "60" days or less maximum password age, run the following command:

# grep PASS_MAX_DAYS /etc/login.defs | grep -v "#"

The DoD requirement is "60" days or less (Greater than zero, as zero days will lock the account immediately).

If "PASS_MAX_DAYS" is not set to the required value, this is a finding.
