Could anyone enlighten me on the following problem.
When running the passwd command against a username - logged on as root
- i am being prompted to enter a password e.g.
[root at sys01 /etc]# passwd -f ntrivass
The nsswitch.conf is set correctly:
# An example file that could be copied over to /etc/nsswitch.conf; it
# DNS for hosts lookups, otherwise it does not use any other naming
# "hosts:" and "services:" in this file are used only if the
# /etc/netconfig file has a "-" for nametoaddr_libs of "inet"
Permissions are set correctly:
# which passwd
# ls -l /usr/bin/passwd
-r-sr-xr-x 1 root sys 23500 Mar 19 2003 /usr/bin/passwd
I have not seen this behaviour before, can anyone advise?
