Solution: Error - "passwd: Sorry: less than 7 days since the last change."


When you trying to change password in solaris, you may get the below error:

ORACLE user1$ passwd oracle
Enter existing login password:
passwd: Sorry: less than 7 days since the last change.
Permission denied


As root do the following:
# passwd -n 0 oracle

Now, Ask the oracle user to try again.
ORACLE user1$  passwd oracle

Now the Oracle user able to change their password.

Permenant fix:

Take a look at /etc/default/passwd file and check the MINWEEKS Parameter.

You can change it to NULL if you don't want a minimum time between password changes.
