Hi

can someone help me understand what is missing here?

You either need to modify the /etc/login.defs or use the chage command. The /etc/login.defs would be used before the accounts are created. The chage command would allow you to modify existing accounts.

@biltonbilmes Seems you are doing right - let me have a look , there may be a bug in the lab script ( surprisingly! bcz it was not there last time I checked). If any discrepancy is there - I will report it to the developers to fix it asap !

@biltonbilmes I did try the lab exercise in a fresh lab of mine and I was unable to reproduce the error in my lab :

Could you please retry the same in a freshly built lab ( delete and recreate the entire lab ) and see if this is working fine for you ?

Try this: "chage -M 90 consultant3"

found using "chage --help" and verified

I found that the lab scripts will sometimes evaluate whether you used the "correct" command vs evaluating the end result. On the exam, only the end result matters, not the command used to achieve said result.

I would not stress it too much, IF you are confident the end result is 100% correct.
