NAME

       shadowconfig - toggle shadow passwords on and off

SYNOPSIS

       shadowconfig on | off

DESCRIPTION

       shadowconfig on will turn shadow passwords on; shadowconfig off will turn shadow passwords
       off. shadowconfig will print an error message and exit with a nonzero  code  if  it  finds
       anything  awry.  If  that  happens, you should correct the error and run it again. Turning
       shadow passwords on when they are already on,  or  off  when  they  are  already  off,  is
       harmless.

       Read  /usr/share/doc/passwd/README.Debian for a brief introduction to shadow passwords and
       related features.

       Note that turning shadow  passwords  off  and  on  again  will  lose  all  password  aging
       information.
