I have an /etc/security/user file on AIX and I have a stanza that looks like this:

someuser:
expires = 0912154623
account_locked = false


expires = 0116202437
account_locked = false

Which of the values takes precedence in this case? This is an error in the SA's part, but I'm curious how AIX handles this.

It reads the first one and stops, or at least it used to in AIX 5.3.
