I need to change a group of users so that all their passwords show they changed it -1 day before this way there passwords will not need to be reset for another 90 days and it does not require them to change their PW right now but instead keeps the one they have in place for 90 more days.  If theres an easier way to do this please let me know other wise my thoughts were change the pwdlastset to -1
