The customer is understanding that a random password will be generated and it will be updated when he changes the password from PAM. He would like to know if there is the way to set a specific password of a specific account, not random password.

As the background of this question, when the password is changed to a random password, when a problem occurs, the situation will occur that no one login the target server. So, he would like to remain a specific account with the fixed password, and he would like to periodically change the password of the account at will. 
Is it possible for PAM to change the password we want, not automatically generation, to the target account?
