NOTE: Tricky question, for Advanced Linuxoids only !
how can I create encrypted passwords from shell script ?
in Debian "mkpasswd" does this job, but not so for Red Hat...
In Debian, when I write shell, I can change user's password, like this:
usermod -p $(mkpasswd -s $password) $user
I'm trying to find equivalent in Red Hat.
I did "man usermod" and "man adduser" but both require encrypted password.
Notice: "mkpasswd" command does *exist* in Red Hat (part of "expect"), but is completely different from Debian's... so I'm stuck.
Thanks in advance,
