Hello Bruce,

I'm sorry for the delayed response, although FYI it is quite typical
that I respond to non-urgent messages with a delay of a few days.

Using only flat files, the tool works perfectly (Thank You!), but even if nis is specified in the nsswitch.conf file, I get a Permission denied right after if verifies the password.  I am running on Solaris 9 (but I've tested it with the same results on Solaris 8 and 10).  I've tried version 1.2.2 and 1.0.5 and get the identical results.  The password portion of my pam.conf file is identical to the wiki page entry.

No, I was not aware of this problem before, and it appears that no one
in here has run into it.  There are very few subscribers on this mailing
list, though - most users of passwdqc don't subscribe.

We might try to reproduce the problem on a suitable occasion (I don't
have a suitable Solaris setup handy right now), or/and you may try to
debug it on your own (run the passwd command under truss, etc.)  If you
figure this out, please post to the list to let us and others know.
