I'm having an issue with my password hashing. In /etc/shadow all the passwords hashes start with $1$. The security people want me to change it so the password hash starts with $5$ or $6$. So this is what I did to fix this.
I changed CRYPT_DEFAULT for 1 to 6
When I create a new account, the account uses the new password hashing method, but when I change an existing accounts password it still uses the old method. I'm thinking that I need to restart something but I don't know what.
