    <title>DESCRIPTION</title>
    <para><command>shadowconfig</command> on will turn shadow passwords on;
      <emphasis remap='B'>shadowconfig off</emphasis> will turn shadow
      passwords off. <command>shadowconfig</command> will print an error
      message and exit with a nonzero code if it finds anything awry. If
      that happens, you should correct the error and run it again. Turning
      shadow passwords on when they are already on, or off when they are
      already off, is harmless.
    </para>

    <para>
      Read <filename>/usr/share/doc/passwd/README.Debian</filename> for a
      brief introduction
      to shadow passwords and related features.
    </para>

    <para>Note that turning shadow passwords off and on again will lose all
      password
      aging information.
