Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 2627
"rootpw --iscrypted" fails in kickstart installation
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:50 EDT
When doing a kickstart installation with RedHat 6.0
(kickstart is great!) and writing something like
rootpw --iscrypted 8d78LWoez74ef
in the kickstart file sets the root password to "8d78LWoe".
--iscrypted still worked in 5.2. I quickly looked through
the code in install2, but there were little changes in
the password code, so I could not figure the problem out.
I have --useshadow in auth config.
