    change user password nsh script shows clear text pw in rscd.log

      my team was working on using the canned script from BL that changes pw for all the 4 major unix variants supported by BL.


      well we noticed that the execution of the script calls parameters from the job and puts the clear text userID and pw as options to the command line shown in the rscd.log, which is a security violation for most companies and mine is no exception.


      My question is has anyone come up with a work around for this problem? I have a ticket open with BMC, but I wondered if anyone had modified the script or gotten a solution from BMC/BL for how to handle this problem.


      Thanks in advance.


      I have attached the script as reference.
