i have to manage a couple of MAC's with local accounts.

Now i know pwpolicy to set local passwordpolicys, but i can't find a way to force a password history. I tried to use the "usingHistory=5" option but it's not supported localy. I even tried to set up a OSX Server with OD and connected a client to it, but the policys are not working for the local accounts.

Any ideas highly appreciated.

Thanks in advance
