Step 6.4. Enable Task

To rotate the password it will be necessary to enable the task Expire untrusted passwords.

The Expire untrusted passwords task is in charge to create a new password for the accounts:

  • Critical accounts with the password type "Automatically generated", in that case, the Renewal Time value will be in mind to determine when a password expires.
  • Also, for accounts with the "Entered by the user" Password type that has expired. That case is out of the rotation passwords in the PAM implementation.
