AIX: New password requires a minimum of 1 elapsed week between changes.

Got an error message when I tried changing root's password subsequently.

New password requires a minimum of 1 elapsed week between changes.
Only the system administrator can change this password.

Solution is to use the NOCHECK of pwdadm command.

AIX xxxndsap01 1 7 00EA1A4B6C00
$ sudo pwdadm -f NOCHECK root; sudo chpasswd < .2017R4_root.pwd
