Issue/Introduction

Introduction: 

 

Some acids can change their password at anytime regardless how the NEWPW(MINDAYS) value is.

How is it possible?

E.g. MINDAYS=1 means an acid cannot change his password more than one a day. We may notice that some acids can do it at anytime without limit. 

 

Instructions: 
 
MINDAYS is applicable only for user ACIDs and does not apply when administrative ACIDs change their password at signon.
 
MINDAYS is not applicable to users who have a non-expiring password.
