converting trusted mode passwd to normal form

Is it possible to convert trusted mode to normal mode ,when we are considerig about passwd authenification system .
In normal mode i think that passwd authentification is based on /etc/passwd file
But after entering pwconv command ,it moves to
trusted mode
My doubt is it possible to convert back from trusted mode to normal form ...
some where i get the following message
/usr/lib/tsconvert command is used for
this , is it right ?

To revert a system use the -r switch with tsconvert.

Re: converting trusted mode passwd to normal form

The 'pwconv' command is only to be used to update the secure password database after changes have been made to /etc/passwd. It does NOT convert a system.

# /usr/lbin/tsconvert (converts a system to trusted)

# /usr/lbin/tsconvert -r (converts a trusted system back to normal)
