Import Users Default Password

We're running into some trouble with our Import Users process as we're in the middle of changing from a Windows environment to Linux. Our Import Users job fails in Linux with a "Bad UTF" error on the "Encrypt Password" step (an OOTB step).

We're thinking about trying to run Import Users without this step, as we don't really understand the purpose of it and the Default Password field on the report submission screen. Could anyone shed some light on these for us?
