I tried it myself, Please check if it is helpful to you.

 

 

# PSW=`perl -e "print crypt('test', 'ab')"`
# echo $PSW
abgOeLfPimXQo
# useradd -p $PSW testuser
#

 

 

Here 'test' is the password .

Hello,

 

Others gave you useful advice.

 

Some years ago, I wrote the Perl script to

do it for alarge telco across five operating systems:

Linux, HP-UX, Solaris, Tru64 and AIX).

 

Maybe you find it useful:

You are welcome to modify it as much as you wish as long

as you share it with others. I strongly believe in power

and importance of open-source and public-domain.
