http://www.unix.com – I'm trying to configure the pam_passwdqc.so module in /etc/pam.d/system-auth on a RHEL 5 system. I've added the pam_passwdqc.so line in the config file and commented out the line for pam_cracklib.so as shown below: Code: password    required      pam_passwdqc.so min=disable,disable,disable,8,7 passphrase=0 random=0 similar=permit #password    requisite    pam_cracklib.so try_first_pass retry=3 password    sufficient    pam_unix.so md5 shadow nullok try_first_pass use_authtok password    required    (HowTos)
