Are passwords limited to 8 char?
AIX passwords are only significant to 8 characters. You can set a
passwd to more than 8 characters but anything over eight are ignored.
No messages or warnings are given.
Be careful if you're running NIS. You probably want to limit passwords
to 8 char on all machines (6000 and others) to be compatible.
Someone mentioned that DCE supports kerberos which supports passwords
greater than 8 characters.
