The command to use (for all users) is

lsuser ALL

("ALL" in uppercase)

This will give you quite a lot of output.

The flags which might be of interest to you are:

expires, pwdwarntime, account_locked, minage, maxage,  maxexpired, minalpha, minother, mindiff, maxrepeats, minlen, histexpire, histsize, pwdchecks

So:

lsuser -a expires pwdwarntime account_locked minage maxage maxexpired minalpha minother mindiff maxrepeats minlen histexpire histsize pwdchecks ALL

will show only the mentioned flags.

Replace ALL wit a username or a comma-separated list of usernames to see the settings for a subset of your user community, like this:

lsuser -a expires pwdwarntime account_locked minage maxage maxexpired minalpha minother mindiff maxrepeats minlen histexpire histsize pwdchecks user1,user2,user3

See "man chuser" (!) or look here:
http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/aix/v7r1/index.jsp?topic=%2Fcom.ibm.aix.cmds%2Fdoc%2Faixcmds1%2Fchuser.htm
for detailed info on the meaning of the single flags.

If you have difficulties understanding the concept or some flags please don't hesitate to ask, I'll explain.
