Greetings,

I remember finding this before (and I thought it was in sshd_config) but I can't seem to find where I can disable password expiration in Solaris 10 for SSH.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Yes, but please keep in mind that there is no password setting exclusively for ssh, it uses just the operating system password (if publickey or the like is not configured/used).

SSH does not have a provision to create and keep paswords. Passwrd authentication is done with through the hosting OS. So if a user password expires in the os then he won't be able to logon through SSH.
