Unable to change password

view story

http://www.unix.com – I need to change password of a non-root user on HPUX. Due to some local policy, it is not allowing me to do so. I need to keep same (previous) password, as that is application user. Can I bypass policy for this time, for this user somehow ? I am root on this machine.
