       epn.conf - Expiring Password Notification configuration file




       The  epn.conf configuration file is used to set the options for the ipa-epn tool to notify
       users of upcoming password expiration.


       The configuration options are not case  sensitive.  The  values  may  be  case  sensitive,
       depending on the option.

       Blank lines are ignored.  Lines beginning with # are comments and are ignored.

       Valid  lines  consist  of  an  option name, an equals sign and a value. Spaces surrounding
       equals sign are ignored. An option terminates at the end of a line.

       Values should not be quoted, the quotes will not be stripped.

           # Wrong - don't include quotes
           verbose = "True"

           # Right - Properly formatted options
           verbose = True

       Options must appear in the section named [global]. There are no other sections defined  or
       used currently.

       Options may be defined that are not used by IPA. Be careful of misspellings, they will not
       be rejected.
