OES Linux and 8 Character Passwords

Did you know that OES on SLES is incapable of using passwords for the Root user longer than 8 characters?


Did you also know that OES on SLES allows you to blank out the Root user password using the passwd utility?


Did you know that lots of stuff is dependent on the Root user, and that password cannot be controlled through NAMCD or eDirectory?


Hoo boy.
