passwd -uf issues
So I'm experimenting with the passwd command to become more failure it. I created an user account that had no password to practice on. I tried using the -u option to unlock it go the response:
Cannot unlock the password for 'duplicateTest'!
Read the man page and it instructs me to add the -f option to force it to accept unlocking an account with no password but !. I type in:
passwd -uf duplicateTest
The response is:
passwd: invalid option -- 'f'
I rearranging the options and it prompted me to enter a change of finger information. Tried separating them, bracketing them ect...no dice.Can't find anything else on the net but what is stated on the man page, to add the force option. This is driving my OCD self crazy, any thoughts?
