Description Erik Troan 1998-12-30 16:06:39 UTC
On systems with shadow, vipw should merge /etc/passwd and /etc/shadow into a single file for editing, them split the passwords back out again on exit. At least, this is what OpenBSD does and that seems to make sense.
Comment 1 seva 1999-01-05 00:52:59 UTC
On solaris, vipw let's you change the password file and if something changed offers you to edit the shadow file also... You get a message like this: You have modified the password file. Press 'e' to edit the shadow file for consistency, 'q' to quit:

We have determined that this is a feature request, rather than a bug. Please report feature requests to the author of the package itself.
Comment 3 Preston Brown 1999-03-22 19:02:59 UTC
We will implement this feature at some point in the future.
Comment 4 Alan Cox 2000-08-05 01:03:56 UTC
When shall we implement it 8)
Comment 5 Aleksey Nogin 2002-05-02 13:59:37 UTC
vipw have been capable of handling the shadow passwords for quite a while now. Reopening to mark as really closed.
