esxcfg-auth --usepamqc=disabled error

I am attempting to implement the pam_passwdqc.so plugin and I am getting an error when using the disabled keyword.

The specific command I am using is:

esxcfg-auth --usepamqc=disabled disabled -1 10 10 4

The error message I get is:

esxcfg-auth: error: option --usepamqc: invalid integer value: 'disabled'

My software platform is ESX Server 3. 0.1 without Virtual Center.

I am attempting to implement password requirements to meet AR25-2. I want to disabled 1 and 2 character class passwords. Unfortuanately the disabled keyword is failing me. Any help will be appreciated.

I corresponded with Tech support and got an answer. The -1 option for the command is equivalent to the "disabled" option in the manual. Therefore my specific command becomes: esxcfg-auth --usepamqc=-1 -1 -1 10 10 4
