local admin account expiration

Jump to solution

Does anyone know how to have an account NOT expire. I think it is every 90 days for all accounts to have their passwords changed. We want to have the admin password never expire.

Can this be done?

FYI - We are using firewall enterprise 7.01.02

Thanks

You can configure the Password expiration in the Password Authenticator

Go to Policy -> Rule Elements -> Authenticators

You will see the Password Expiration field under General -> Local Settings. Enter a very large number (like 9999) which is essentially never expiring (like 27 years)

See the attached Screenshot for details.

AFAIK the maximum is 999 days.
