Thanks. Does this apply system wide?
e.g. I issue:
passwd -w 4
on the server, does everyone get the 4 day warning?

No, this is a field in /etc/shadow (man shadow).
You can get that warning value also with 'chage -l username'.

But I guess I remember that there was some central knob to
turn off password warning (and/or expiration) at all.

Have a nice day,
