Issue:
If we run sepass command with the following tokens on CA PIM12.8SP1(RO93741/RO94821), 
we will see the "Syntax error" like this.

[Tokens] in $SEOSDIR/seos.ini file:
passwd_distribution_encryption_mode = 1
passwd_local_encryption_method = sha512

[Error]
$sepass
Enter XXX's old password:
Enter new password:
Verify new password:
Syntax error: Illegal user name or password.
$

If they use RO98280, it is correct working.
Environment:
RedHat Linux6.5
CA PIM12.8SP1
Resolution:
This problem is already fixed by RO98280.
Also, we cannot download the RO93741 and RO94821 because of meltdown problem.
So please use the latest installer or RO98280.
