If you use the Novell utility :uimport" and create a file with the relevant field of "Date password expires" then run it from the command prompt, making sure you are in the correct context using the cx command, it will update the files.

Also you can use "nlist user" to get user details to import to your fields file in the first place. This will also allow you to check their current status.
