Trying to assist someone with activating password aging. They are currently
running Solaris 2.x using NIS+. They have indicated that the NIS+ password
aging feature is broken. I have searched and find a lot of articles about
this problem. Can you confirm this? This functionality is necessary for an
appropriate security implementation.

I am not using NIS+ so I can not test.

Thanks
