AIX:
/etc/security/login.cfg

But don't edit this file. Use "lsuser" and "chuser"!
See the respective manpages.

The other relevant file in AIX is /etc/security/user.
But as I wrote, don't edit these files directly.
Use
lsuser -f username to list attributes
and chuser attribute=value username to change them.

Solaris:

/etc/default/passwd is the configuration file.

Use /bin/passwd to change values.
See "man passwd" for more.
