Command to set Solaris PW expiration date...

These values can be set or modified from the command line by root, using the passwd command as follows;

# passwd -n 0 -w 14 -x 60 username
Where -n is the minimum number of days allowed between password changes, -w is the number of days befor the password expires and the user is warned, and -x is the maximum munber of days that the password will be valid for.

These values can ONLY be queried or changed by root.

When a user changes their password, only the encrypted password and current date are stored in /etc/shadow. The "number-of-days" values are not changed.
The expiration date, is calculated, not stored.

To remove the password expiration, symply type:

# passwd -x -1 username
