Password expires today

Question

Why is "Password expires today" displayed when logging in with Radius or LDAP.

Answer

Starting in software update version 5.1.4, while logging into the web browser using LDAP or Radius authentication, "Password expires today" is displayed as a message at the top of the browser.

This message can simply be disregarded. It is the result of the authentication module looking for a local account inside the time server. When its not able to find it (since its actually stored in the remote authentication server), it assumes the password for the account has expired and needs to be changed.  It is not an indication of a problem with the login or with the time server.
