Note: The option to migrate to the SHA hash mode has been deprecated in Release ATG 12.1.3+,  12.2.3+ and higher. You should now migrate to SHA-256, SHA-384, or SHA-512.  Please see the second section in the solution area of this note for details on Using AFPASSWD to Migrate to a Password Hashing Scheme.  Please note that it is also applicable to 12.1 release back-port.
