RE: Problem changing passwords after import

Title: RE: Problem changing passwords after import

Yes the user initially has a password.  I used padl scripts to import all the users from a /etc/passwd file.  So everyones password is what it was when we were just using flat password files.  Once I import the user I can ftp to a server with the username and password fine.  So I know I am using the correct password. But it is when I go to change it as the user when I have the problem.  But like I said before once it is changed as the manager account, I can change it as the user.  Thanks again.

Does the user initially have a password?  How is it set?  How do you
know that password is "rt#12345"?
