tsconvert will convert back to standard security. However, under the Trusted system, users (and root) could set passwords much longer than 8 characters. tsconvert will not be able convert the longer password into something usable so those users (and potentially root) will be unable to login. Be sure to set a short password (8 or less chars) BEFORE converting back to standard mode.

Nice write up Bill I never knew it :)...may be because I never turned it back :D

why you want to revert from trusted mode , its at least better than normal and gives you lots of options.
