 951 Error with dbaccess and informix account ...

I m working on Solaris 2.5.7 with Informix Dynamic Server 2000 Version
9.20.UC2
and like we needed to reboot and change informix password. I now find
out each
time I try to SELECT or CONNECT with DBACCESS the 951 Error :

finderr 951 :
-951    User username is not known on the database server.

The database server that you tried to access does not accept either
your user ID, the login name that is specified for the desired server
host in your ~/.netrc file, or the user name that is specified in the
USER clause of a CONNECT statement. If you are explicitly specifying
your user name in the ~/.netrc file or in a CONNECT statement, check
that the name is correct. If you do not have a valid user ID on the
server computer, see your system administrator. This message appears
with Version 6.0 and later.

Like it was working few hours ago, I tried to see what changes were made
in System files :
( Remember that we only changed the password with passwd command )

/etc/passwd :
informix:x:104:10000::/usr/informix:/bin/ksh  

/etc/shadow :
informix:T2RT3TXXT:11199::::Wed Aug 30 17:24:01 GMT 2003::      

Doesn't someone have an idea ?

I found in TECH INFO Center :
Unfortunatly there is lot of others Bugs on 951

                   Product: Informix ONLINE
                          Reported: 09/24/1998

                   -951 ERROR ON CONNECTING TO A DB ON SOLARIS IF
PASSWORD
                   AGING IS USED

                   Verified in     Fixed in                   9.30.UC1
                                    UNIX

                   On Solaris 2.6, if you use password aging by
specifying the number of
                   days to age from when the password was changed, on
the day the password
                   expires, you will get a 951 error when an app tries
to connect to
                   an IDS database. This is probably a regression of bug
83754.
                   If you age the password by specifying a date rather
than the number of days,
                   then you do not get this problem.

But even trying to age the passwd it doesn't work any more.
Here is my tries with /etc/shadow

first thing : Without the third field ( BAD  951 Error )
informix:T2RT3TXXT:::::::

second thing : With Expiration Date ( BAD 951 Error )
informix:T2RT3TXXT:::::Wed Aug 30 17:24:01 GMT 2000::
