Making Datastage Admin ID's non Expirable

Post date: May 12, 2016 2:52:16 PM

The important aspect after installing datastage is to set the id's to not expire. Otherwise it will create issues after a month (as 30 days is the default expiration policy in most of unix / linux machines)

Execute the below command as root (or sudo) to set the expiry to all the datastage service accounts.

chage -I -1 -m 0 -M 99999 -E -1 xmeta
chage -I -1 -m 0 -M 99999 -E -1 xmetasr
chage -I -1 -m 0 -M 99999 -E -1 iauser
chage -I -1 -m 0 -M 99999 -E -1 srduser
chage -I -1 -m 0 -M 99999 -E -1 dsodb
chage -I -1 -m 0 -M 99999 -E -1 db2admin
chage -I -1 -m 0 -M 99999 -E -1 db2inst1
chage -I -1 -m 0 -M 99999 -E -1 db2fenc1
chage -I -1 -m 0 -M 99999 -E -1 dsadm
