There's a copy in Google's cache, which gives this sample:

| Change the user's password:
| # passwd mehdi   <-- I set this password: "Thisisanewlongpassword:)"
| If you are curious, have a look at /etc/security/passwd:
| # grep -p mehdi /etc/security/passwd
| mehdi:
|         password = {ssha512}06$Zq5raZlRV3yGMiqT$07e5A.zEP/XnDWto5B4.JMszwgWEIH68mMcrzHCC9h5OmKEQ.SsBKw3hexid3hT9X0al.39iSV/Xi1txzU5C..

This page gives another:

| If I change the password for the user brian to "colorado" again the /etc/security/passwd file will now show:
| brian:
| 	password =
| {ssha512}06$otYx2eSXx.OkEY4F$No5ZvSfhYuB1MSkBhhcKJIjS0.q// wdkcZwF9/TXi3EnL6Qero

Neither matches standard sha512crypt.  I also tried other likely default
iteration counts (like 1000 and 10000) - no luck.
