Error: Authentication token is no longer valid


When we try to edit crontab via crontab -e
It was working before,however  it error  out recently.

 Authentication token is no longer valid; new one required
You (oracle) are not allowed to access to (crontab) because of pam configuration.


 The linux user expires in OS. It prevents it to run crontab
  Use this command to check details
  chage  -l  <user>

  Use below to update the attribution of expire date
  chage <user>           ---  it is interactive

Another reason is about  /etc/security/access.conf
Need to allow user to access cron resource
+ : oracle : ALL
