Enable long password in HP-UX 11i v3

Hi All,

 

I need to know the step where I'm not correct, while trying to enable long password (greater than 8 characters) on my Hp-UX 11i v3 VM. I've installed the packages LongPass11i3(B.11.31.01) & PHI11i3(B.11.31.02) and made the necessary changes in /etc/default/security. I've attached the logs below.

 

# swlist -R |grep -i -e phi11 -e sha11 -e long

What is the problem?  I see nothing anywhere that says exactly what your problem is.  Error messages, if any are displayed, would be very helpful.

Re: Enable long password in HP-UX 11i v3

Have you converted the system to shadow mode (using the "pwconv" command) successfully? Does /etc/shadow exist?
