Encrypting Passwords in a commandline Script
 
Hi,

i am working to set up a Automatik Installation for RH 7.3 in the Kickstart File you are able to set the RootPW in an encryted form.
I am searching for a Script that takes a clear password from the stdin and gives back the encrypted one to the stdout.

Would be very cool if anyone has something like that or knows where I can find one. I am no real scripter.. i can modify some but since I don t know Perl or python I am not able to build up one by my self. :rolleyes:

Thanks

Jan-Tajo

Jan-Tajo,

openssl passwd -stdin
Make sure the openssl package is installed, but it probably is. ($ is the command line)
$ echo test1|openssl passwd -stdin

Good Luck,
chris
