Are there any other places this kind of information can be stored? (CentOS 4) I made the below changes but when I try to change a password it still says
"The password is too short. Please use at least 6 characters."
- I looked at /etc/login.defs and PASS_MIN_LEN was already set to 5.
- There is no such file as /etc/pam.d/common-password
- There is nothing having to do with password lengths in /etc/pam.d/system-auth. This is what it says about passwords there:
password requisite /lib/security/$ISA/pam-cracklib.so retry=3
password sufficient /lib/security/$ISA/pam_unix.so nullok use_authtok md5 shadow
password required /lib/security/$ISA/pam_deny.so
(in fact the string 'min' is nowhere in any file in /etc/pam.d/* - I grep'ped -i for it)
