Giving passwords from command line
Posted on 2000-03-08
I need a utility that will enable me to assign passwords to users from command line. I.e I want to be able to do something like this
paswd --newpass p asdf user
passwd command on the system is interactive and cannot assign passwords from command line. We need a way thats reliable, quick and something that can work on a multi user system.
We keep passwords in the shadow file. I'm working on SunOS 5.6. We have thousands of users.
Thanks in advance
