Description Sankar Ramalingam 2015-05-21 14:25:49 UTC
Description of problem: When trying to register a new instance remotely, I observed that it prints the password on the terminal.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 389-admin-1.1.40-1.el7dsrv.x86_64

Enter Remote hostname: cloud-qe-22.idmqe.lab.eng.bos.redhat.com
Enter Remote port: 1189
Enter Remote bind DN: "cn=Directory Manager"
Enter Remote bind password: Secret123

Actual results: Clear text password on the command line.
