Read password from shell script

Since you don't want password to be not displayed on terminal you need to disable echo before reading password. Once password is read you need to enable it again.

#  Read Password
/usr/ucb/echo -n “Please Enter Password For User ${SUSER}: “
stty -echo
read SPSWD
stty echo
