You can implement the /etc/shadow functionality by using the 'pwconv' command.

 

# man pwconf

 

for more information.

Even with /etc/shadow activated, the MD5 password hash algorithm is not supported on HP-UX.

 

If you install the free LongPasswords option, then you can use SHA512 password hash algorithm (password hash prefix $6$):

Have to put a entry in /etc/default/security

 

# vi /etc/default/security

CRYPT_DEFAULT=6
