How to change a user's password in AIX with the output from ECHO command

# echo "user:n3w_p466w0rd" | /bin/chpasswd -c

Where user is the user to which you wish the password changed and after ":" is the new password.

 Output from chpasswd command:

Examples
       1    To set passwords for users from the command line, type:

            chpasswd
            Followed by entering username:password pairs, one pair per line. Enter CTRL+D when finished.

            user1:passwd1
            user2:passwd2
            CTRL+D
       2    To set passwords for users contained in a file named mypwdfile, type the following:

            cat mypwdfile | chpasswd
            Note that mypwdfile must contain username:password pairs; one pair per line. For example:

            user1:passwd1
            user2:passwd2

This works for Aix 5.2 or later.
