Passwd -S is supposed to print summary information for a login name;
instead, it claims it sets the passwd, but doesn't really.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Become root
2. # passwd -S [some-account-name]
3. Observe that is sets the password instead of printing account info.
except that it doesn't really set the password either; it appears
to do nothing.
Actual Results: # passwd -S bbogus
Changing passwd for user bbogus
Password set. MD5 encryption
Expected Results: What the man page says:
-S This will output a short information about the sta-
tus of the password for a given account. ...
passwd -S acts the same way with version 7.1
are there any actions being taken on resolving this.
This is fixed in recent releases. Closing this.
