Sometimes you're in a hurry and need to set a new, random password on an account. Don't feel your random banging the keyboard is random enough? Then use this script instead.

Usage of boks_set_passwd

./boks_set_passwd.ksh [HGROUP|HOST]:USER

./boks_set_passwd.ksh SUN:thomas
./boks_set_passwd.ksh solaris2:root


Three fields get echoed to stdout: the username, the password and the encrypted password string (should you ever need it).
