|The second error is because (despite the documentation) the classList editor complains if the student's status is blank.
If this works for a couple of students select the rest of them and
perform the same procedure. For now use "C" in the .lst files
for current status rather than blank.
- select a couple of students and press "edit selected students"
- you don't need to do any editing, just save the results
- the blanks will be updated with "C" for current(ly enrolled)
For the first problem, I assume that you uploaded explicit passwords.
I can't find where this feature is documented at the moment (the
feature has been there for sometime, but hidden) Unfortunately the
documentation is probably not complete. Here is a note from Sam on the
I'm not sure this is documented anywhere, but the password field in
a classlist file is the HASHED password, not the cleartext password. If
you export some users to a classlist file you'll see what I mean.
To calculate hashes for cleartext passwords, you can use the following perl one-liner:
perl -ne 'print crypt($_,join("",(".","/",0..9,"A".."Z","a".."z")[rand 64,rand 64])),"\n"'
It takes cleartext passwords as input, and outputs the corresponding hashes.
Hope this helps. If anyone can point me to the documentation on uploading explicit passwords I'll update it.
