When I executed following dbmmanage command, password added in password file
was NOT encrypted.
    ./dbmmanage /user2 add kubota 1107
And when I tried to access protected document from client browser, I got an
error message saying "password mismatch".

UserID, Password
    UserID      kubota
    Password    1107

httpd.conf definition
    LoadModule dbm_auth_module /libexec/mod_auth_dbm.so

    <Directory /usr/lpp/HTTPServer/share/htdocs/manual>
        AuthType               Basic
        AuthName              "Protected Material"
        AuthDBMUserFile    /user2
        Require                  valid-user
Recreation steps
    1.Execute dbmmanage command
        ./dbmmanage /user2 add kubota 1107
    2.Check the 'user2' file
        Password was NOT encrypted
    3.Access protected URL from browser
        Couldn't retrieve document, and error message was written in
        error log file as shown below
