Hi you guys,

Is the parameter not working as expected? Even with minlen=15, you can 
still have 9 character password.
Any suggestion?

cat > /etc/pam.d/passwd << "EOF"
# Begin /etc/pam.d/passwd

password    required  retry=3 difok=8 minlen=5 \
                                            dcredit=3  ocredit=3 \
                                            ucredit=2  lcredit=2
password    required      md5 shadow use_authtok

# End /etc/pam.d/passwd
