Subject: unrecognized encryption

Guys...
 
I'm trying to recognize the type of encryption used on ExtremeNetworks
switches.....
 
example
 
create account admin "username" encrypted "/64h3c$FQvA67Sp5KOvLlOvT/jF.0"
 
the command above creates an admin level account called username, and the
hash after is obviously the password hashed...
 
but i dont recognise the algorithm......and neither does john......even when
i edit the password file to look like this....
 
username:/64h3c$FQvA67Sp5KOvLlOvT/jF.0
 
significantly the seventh character is ALWAYS a $, could this $ be a
delimiter of some type, perhaps the first six chars are a random key and the
last chars (after the $) are the result of hashing with the random key (I'm
guessing here) 
 
any help identifying the encryption , most welcome
