    It seem max value is 365 days,  you can set 365 first then used "admin" log in again. 

    Router# configure terminal
    Router(config)# pwd-expiry expiration days 365
    Router(config)# write
    Router(config)#

    I did the above via CLI and try to login 'admin' still failed with below screen capture.

    Now I cannot CLI via Putty to my USG60, no matter I use 'admin' or 'adminbkup' / the Putty DOS box just closed after I typed in password.  Believed I have to wait for another "timeout" period and re-try again.
     
    Any further advice from support on my scenario?

    In addition, can I use WebUI to set the expiration period? Can I change 'admin' password directly on the WebUI - configure - object - Group/User so as to bypass the expired password prompt?

    Just a curiosity, this scenario happened after firmware upgrade to v4.70 (for USG60).  Is it something to do with this level of firmware?

    Yes, there's a way to disable the password expiry, AFAIK selectively.

    I don't quite understand what do you mean by AF AIK selectively.

    Kevin, how can I DISABLE the password expiry option?  I prefer to have its admin password NEVER expired. Now I can access WebUI via my admin by forcing the previously logged in (engaged) admin user.
