Enable long password in HP-UX 11i v3

[ Edited ]

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
# LongPass11i3 B.11.31.01 HP-UX 11.31 LongPass11i3 Bundle
# LongPass11i3.LongPassword11i3 B.11.31.01 HP-UX 11.31 LongPassword11i3 Product
LongPass11i3.LongPassword11i3.LP-CONF B.11.31.01 LongPassword11i3 Configuration Files
# PHI11i3 B.11.31.02 HP-UX 11.31 Password Hashing Infrastructure
# PHI11i3.SHA11i3 B.11.31.02 HP-UX 11.31 SHA11i3 Product
# PHI11i3.SHA11i3.Manuals Manual Pages and Documentation
PHI11i3.SHA11i3.Manuals.SHA-ENG-A-MAN B.11.31.02 SHA11i3 English Manpages
PHI11i3.SHA11i3.SHA-CONF B.11.31.02 SHA11i3 Configuration Files
# cat /etc/default/security |grep -v -e "^$" -e "^#"

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.

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