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  harm-
       less.

       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  informa-
       tion.
