           Summary: PublickKeyAuthentication failures when account password
           Product: Portable OpenSSH
           Version: 3.4p1
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: Solaris
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: ssh
        AssignedTo: openssh-unix-dev at mindrot.org
        ReportedBy: jim.a.davidson at bt.com

Some time ago I reported this problem with AIX and I think Darren Tucker was 
kind enough to supply a patch,such that even if the account password had 
expired,we could still use PublicKeyAuthentication to access the remote machine 
using that account.I now seem to have a similar problem with Solaris.Is there a 
patch available for Solaris to allow us to do this.
We typically usr root account to remotely manage machines and usually set it to
PermitRootLogin without-password as well as disabling remote logins in the o/s.
We also use non privileged accounts to sftp stuff around in batch mode and do 
not want to see password change prompts or connection failures because the 
password has expired.
