Automating password encryption or can I allow user to update just a few environment passwords?
I have used the kEncrypt.sh to generate encrypted password. Then drop the first and last 3 characters (#!#) and update the password in an environment. I would like to create a workflow that will automate this. Is it possible to pass the entire encryption to the update statement or must you drop the first 3 and last 3? Because I am not sure of an easy way to drop the last 3 without some crazy awk or sed. (Plus I would prefer not to mess around with cutting characters). Any suggestions or better ways to perform this? I need to allow some users to update a few passwords in PPM.

We have a similar requirement in to automate the password update for environment. Does this workaounrd working for you. If you can share some feedback then it will be great help for us. Also we are on Solaris server. Will this command work over there.
