Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 53137
inconsistent entries in /etc/shadow
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:36:50 EDT
On a freshly-installed RC2 system, some disabled accounts contain "*" for
their encrypted passwd string in /etc/shadow, while others contain "!!".
This is apparently because pwconv uses "*", while useradd / adduser uses "!!".
Still true with 7.3 gold
True with RHL 8.0
Is there any problem with this? What should be in /etc/shadow and why?
