I tried that but the encrypted string in /etc/shadow is a lot longer than what is in a passwd file in another repo.


It look like that in the other file:




I remember running a command that added the user to the file, but I don’t remember what I did.

Here's how I do it on my Sun box

  1. If necessary, reset the persons password
  2. Look in the /etc/shadow file and find the  username  you are working with
  3. Copy the users encrypted password from /etc/shadow (this will be all characters between the first and second colon)
  4. Go into /opt/cvsroot/CVSROOT and copy the users info into this file (or replace as necessary), in the following format
    <username>:<encrypted password copied from /etc/shadow>):<username>
  5. Save and exit
