Description Chaskiel Grundman 1999-10-19 11:18:03 EDT
If shadow passwords are not being used on a system, the
following things do not seem to work properly

1) logging in if you have an empty password. pam_pwdb
reports 'get passwd; pwdb: request not recognized' in syslog
2) changing  or deleting the password of an entity that
currently does not have a password (either an 'empty
password' or 'no password'). passwd reports success, but the
contents of /etc/passwd are not changed
