passwords expiration

Postby Liz » Mon Nov 05, 2007 3:29 pm


Some users are unable to log in with their randomly generated passwords after some time passes, maybe 6 months or so. Do passwords expire, particularly randomly generated ones? Thanks!

Hi Liz,

No, passwords don't expire; are you sure your system configuration didn't change (i.e. hashing from MD5 to SHA1 in or something similar?
