NAME

cvm-pwfile - POSIX-style passwd file module

SYNOPSIS

cvm-pwfile

CREDENTIALS

Pass phrase

DESCRIPTION

This module loads entries from an alternate password file using the fgetpwent(3) API, which requires the file to be formatted the same as the UNIX /etc/passwd file. No group name lookups are done.

CONFIGURATION VARIABLES

CVM_PWFILE_PATH
the path to the passwd file containing the credential information.
CVM_PWFILE_PWCMP (optional)
The password comparison module to use. If it is not set, the default password comparison mode is plain-text. To use UNIX crypt style passwords, like /etc/passwd does, set this to "crypt".
