 While a majority of the password control parameters have been moved to PAM, some parameters are still available through the shadow password suite. Any changes made to ''/​etc/​login.defs''​ will only be applied if the ''​usermod''​ command is used. If user IDs are added a different way, use the ''​chage''​ command to effect changes to individual user IDs. While a majority of the password control parameters have been moved to PAM, some parameters are still available through the shadow password suite.
