You can extend the password expiration time manually to number of days required for the AppDefense Appliance. If needed, you can also disable the password expiration permanently. Default setting is to expire both ‘admin’ & ‘root’ account password after every 90 days as per VMware’s security policy.
To change the password expiration to X days as per your organizations security policy below commands can be run on the appliance via SSH session –
sudo chage -I -1 -m 0 -M <X days> -E -1 admin
sudo chage -I -1 -m 0 -M <X days> -E -1 root
Replace the <X days> with the integer value which should be set as password expiration days
Also, you can disable the password expiration permanently for the AppDefense Appliance. To disable password expiration permanently run the below commands on the appliance
sudo chage -I -1 -m 0 -M 99999 -E -1 admin
sudo chage -I -1 -m 0 -M 99999 -E -1 root
