Changing Password process takes a long time

We are running unix. After a reboot of the server we have found that changing password takes a long time. if type in passwd "username" you can type in the 1st instance of the password , press enter , then it will wait for about 3 minutes before bringing up the confirm password line typing it in there , press ok then all is good. Just the time delay between the 1st instance and second instance is a pain.

Sounds like you have a system memory crisis or a very poor connection to a central password management service.
