    Default [SOLVED] Force password change for ALL accounts

    I would think this should be easy but my forum search came up empty.
    I want to force ALL users to enter a NEW password (like checking the "Must change password" box on the admin screen.
    Our MAXAGE is currently 0. If I change it to 90 I know it will force a change every 90 days, but will it begin NOW (next login) and accomplish my purpose? I think I know how to do this with "zmprov ma attrib value" but is there an easier way to ALL accounts?
    Thanks for the assist!

    The property you are looking for is 'zimbraPasswordMustChange' and set it to TRUE. We've done something similar a few times. We can do a 'for each' loop at the command line (assuming bash is the shell).

    for each in `zmprov gaa`; do zmprov ma $each zimbraPasswordMustChange TRUE; done

    I did this from memory, so please test!

    Thanks,
