The Answer is :
Key here is the setting of the AllowNonvmsLoginWithExpiredPw

depending on the clients involved.
There is related information on this topic in the release notes for
TCP/IP Services -- the OpenVMS Wizard will assume you are using the
TCP/IP Services V5.4 release -- and specifically there are SSH clients
which are not capable of supporting the password change request from
the host. Details on this are in the release notes; specifically:
o SSH access from a non-OpenVMS client to a user with an
expired password on an OpenVMS server is controlled by
the value of the AllowNonvmsLoginWithExpiredPw option
in the SSHD2_CONFIG file. For more information about
this option, refer to the HP TCP/IP Services for OpenVMS
Guide to SSH.
