Ok, 3 solutions that might work

1. Enter the user in with a password of foo, make sure that they must change the password at
next login. This would update the password file but be very disruptive of service

2. "UnCrypt" them. This may take some time depending on your schemata of entering
usernames and passwords. Difficult, but not impossible.

3. Take your trusty database of passwords and update your batch file. Prolly not a consideration
as they only have a userlist from the solaris and there was no information concerning a database
of users.

But you are correct, the passwords are not stored clear text. :)
