    You can set a password max age for a particular account.

    # configure account "user" password-policy max-age
    none No maximum age enforced for password

    My apology.

    I think this is not what you are looking for. More clarity here. The command previousely mentioned will expire an existing password in a specified period of time but then prompt a user to change a new password. The user will be able to continue to login with the new password.

    If you want to invalidate a password, I think a timer-based UPM script would be an option.

    Moving to RADIUS mgmt-access is another good way to do this. If the credentials on the server-side have expired, they aren't valid on the switch until the user resets their password (at least with Active Directory).
