Description Rufus Petasus 2001-03-05 17:47:55 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.75 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.2.16-22 i686)

Passwd -S is supposed to print summary information for a login name;
instead,  it claims it sets the passwd,  but doesn't really.

Reproducible: Always
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.
Comment 2 Jindrich Novy 2004-09-16 06:53:06 EDT
This is fixed in recent releases. Closing this.
