Re: More fun with LDAP

I'm hoping there's somebody out there with some LDAP experience. I've run across something for which I haven't found an answer on Google.

I recently tried to use the passwd lock function on an account and received the following:

[root testbox root]$ passwd -l tuser
Locking password for user tuser.
passwd: Error (password not set?)

That smells of a bug in passwd, since all "-l" does is put a "!" in front of the password. It's possible that the system is not escaping the "!" and is trying to background a task or bring up an old command. ---------------------------------------------------------------------- - Rick Stevens, Senior Systems Engineer rstevens vitalstream com - - VitalStream, Inc. http://www.vitalstream.com - - - ----------------------------------------------------------------------
