AIX

show:

lsuser -a expires oracle

"0" means "never expire"

set:

chuser expires=0 oracle

Linux

show:

chage -l oracle

look for "Password Expires:"

set:

chage -I -1 -M 9999 -E -1 oracle

By default passwords do not expire on user accounts. If an expiration date has been added to an account and wish to remove it use either the passwd or chage commands to change the maximum number of days between password changes to -1.
