The manpages might be on you system but are probably residing in another directory. If you add this directory to you MANPATH variable everything should be OK.

Your best bet in finding them on-line is to start at the doc search home page:
Try this for modprpw with links to related commands:

A man page tends to put line in the sand and lots of users start coding it into scripts and tools, later breaking when the program is changed. Check the warnings and the end of the man page on docs.hp.com and see also getprpw.
Trusted System converts several features regarding security to C2 level, most notably removing the password field and placing it along with many new access controls in a hidden directory structure. This goes quite a bit beyond a simple shadow password file.
The downside to Trusted Systems is that since the password entry must be hidden in a secure location, NIS is incompatible. And user-written scripts to maintain the password file will need rewrites.

Another thing I want to clarify is, Trusted system does not support NIS, is that true? How about NIS+? If that is true, that means you can only choose one of them, not both?

Will Response Center support the command? Define what you mean by 'support'...if you mean that a failure of the command to work as you expect or as it once did, then it is not supported. If you mean that the command has a problem working with the tools that call it (such as SAM) then yes, the comand is supported in that context.
