Since you've posted in a SLES forum and are referencing SP2 (and SP3) I
guess you're asking about plain SLES and not OES? I'm also guessing
you're not using eDirectory on SLES?

If so, then that rules eDirectory password policies out of the mix but
you can use PAM.

See

also 'man pam_cracklib'.

HTH.
