Description (partial)


When an account is created using 'set account' command, the system does not check if the password requirements are met. If linux returns a password-related error, the CLI will not pass it to the user and will show the account as present with the 'show account' command. However, the actual unix account is never created.


Reproducible on all linux platforms
