    Starting on a new server and went to change the password, but I got this and can't even find anything about it in google:

    # passwd root
    -bash: passwd: command not found

    I ordered the server about a week ago but just getting around to setting it. Could a hacker disable password changes?

    I'll order a system reinstall just in case, but wonder if anyone has any idea what might have happened.

    now it's on google, after a few minutes:

    centos 6.4 "passwd: command not found"

    this thread is the first result--does the google bot live on this forum? lol

    Are you sure, you are full root user on the server?
    What is the output of "id" and "whoami"?

    I found the solution--have to install passwd

    yum install passwd
