Doing this you need to change the shadow

See also the SUN man page:

You'll find a link in this topic.

Good luck

On AIX you need to change the user file

*
* expires Defines the expiration time for the user account.
* Possible values: a valid date in the form MMDDHHMMYY or 0.
* If 0 the account does not expire. If 0101000070 the account
* is disabled. The range for YY is:
* 00 - 38 years 2000 thru 2038
* 39 - 99 years 1939 thru 1999
