Bringing an old thread back to life ....
As it happens I hit this on Thursday, S11.4

I was convinced it was hardening.

Until I realised 2 servers had the issue on the same day.

Looked at /etc/shadow and noticed that there was a 35 day expiry st
root:<passwd>:19578::::35::811476

passwd -x didn't make any difference, so I edited shadow to remove the
last change and expire entries

It all worked again

These were 2 T8-1s, fresh (factory) install + SRU59

I have 2 more to setup next week, I'll look at the shadow file carefully ...
