prompting for account that expired

I have this problem. Two accounts in an aix. Account A expired and it would auto prompt for new password when the user failed to log in, but Account B would not prompt for the new password. Instead it will only display "your account is expired. Please contact your administrator". I would like to set the auto prompt when account is expired, but how and where do i do this?

No expert in AIX but take a close look at the shadow file - it may be that the B account is locked which is why it isn't allowing prompting (note: AIX may name the shadow file something else).

See AIX security - passwd for more assistance.
