shadow file


Hi everybody,

I would like to know what does it mean when you have "134523415" at the end of a username entry in the /etc/shadow file ?

For example :

root:$1$XypiVblahblah7oYc3i/5vHD.:12138:0:99999:7:::134523415

Haven't found anything on the web ...

man 5 shadow has (part of) the answer.

It's a reserved field, possibly used by pam
