I am not sure where to post my ? since i am very new to the world of linux. I am doing RH130 and i got confused. I am realy confused.
In our notes, it says this..
[root@system root]# chage -l alice
Last Change: May 01, 2003
Password Expires: Oct 28, 2003
Password Inactive: Nov 04, 2003
Account Expires: Dec 31, 2015
Three days must pass before Alice can change her password again. So she will be able to change it beginning on May 4. If the Minimum is set to zero, then there is no waiting period -- she can change it anytime.
After the lesson, i got to answering the questions at the end of the chapter. and the confusion started here.
On January 1, 2009, the superuser executes this command: chage -d 2009-01-01 -m 3 -M 90 -W 7 -I 5 martha. The first four questions are about martha.
2. How often can martha change her password?
A. every day
B. every three days
C. every seven days
D. every 90 days
E. on her birthday
I said that the answer is either C or D but D would be the best answer (since only one correct answer was allowed). So i answered D and i got it wrong. The correct answer was B.
Can someone plz explain this to me how can this be??
thanks in advance and sorry if this is not the correct category...
