Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 8923
usermod -p puts the password both in /etc/passwd and /etc/shadow
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:54 EDT
I call `usermod -p 'encrypted passwd' userid` from a script.
It puts the encrypted password in /etc/shadow, BUT it ALSO puts the same
encrypted password in /etc/shadow...
I am Running RedHat 6.1 with usermode-1.18 (the latest fix) and it still
happens. I also have Shadow and MD5 support enabled. I have also installed
the latest PAM...
I have reported this bug before.
Please contact me directly on my e-mail account if you need further
information, or if you have fixed it, or if I am doing something wrong...
Thanks for your attention.
This is fixed in shadow-utils-19990827-6 and later, which is in Raw Hide and
will be in the next release.
