Question:
If we create a user on selang like this, a pwgrd process is restarted.
#selang
AC>eu testu1 unix password(XXXX)
# ps -aef | grep pwgrd
    root 20854     1  0 10:15:21 ?         0:00 /usr/sbin/pwgrd
# ps -aef | grep pwgrd
    root 21070     1  0 10:24:38 ?         0:00 /usr/sbin/pwgrd

Correct behavior?
Environment:
HP-UX
CA PIM12.8SP1
Answer:
Yes, it is correct behavior.
If we try to change the user password or create a user, the pwgrd process is restarted and the following information is showed in HP-UX syslog file.
==HP-UX syslog file==
<DATE&TIME> <HOSTNAME> pwgrd: Started at <DATE&TIME>, pid = 21070
