Description Erik Troan 1998-12-30 11:06:39 EST
On systems with shadow, vipw should merge /etc/passwd
and /etc/shadow into a single file for editing, them
split the passwords back out again on exit.

At least, this is what OpenBSD does and that seems to make
sense.

On solaris, vipw let's you change the password file and if something
changed offers you to edit the shadow file also...

You get a message like this:

You have modified the password file.
Press 'e' to edit the shadow file for consistency,
 'q' to quit:

We have determined that this is a feature request, rather than a bug.
Please report feature requests to the author of the package itself.
Comment 3 Preston Brown 1999-03-22 14:02:59 EST
We will implement this feature at some point in the future.
Comment 4 Alan Cox 2000-08-04 21:03:56 EDT
When shall we implement it 8)
Comment 5 Aleksey Nogin 2002-05-02 09:59:37 EDT
vipw have been capable of handling the shadow passwords for quite a while now.
Reopening to mark as really closed.
