So,how to make the passwd valid.
the /etc/pam.d/system-auth is like this

auth sufficient pam_unix.so nullok try_first_pass
auth requisite pam_succeed_if.so uid >= 1000 quiet_success
auth required pam_deny.so

account required pam_unix.so
account sufficient pam_localuser.so
account sufficient pam_succeed_if.so uid < 1000 quiet
account required pam_permit.so

password requisite pam_pwquality.so minlen=9 try_first_pass local_users_only retry=3 authtok_type= enforce_for_root ocredit=0 lcredit=-1 ucredit=-1 dcredit=-1 [badw

-session optional pam_systemd.so
session [success=1 default=ignore] pam_succeed_if.so service in crond quiet use_uid

Answer Source

Following works for me:

/tmp ❯❯❯ sudo su
[sudo] password for wani: 
/tmp # ❯❯❯ useradd testuser
/tmp # ❯❯❯ echo -e "abtestuserab\nabtestuserab" | passwd testuser
Changing password for user testuser.
New password: BAD PASSWORD: The password contains the user name in some form
Retype new password: passwd: all authentication tokens updated successfully.
/tmp # ❯❯❯ 

If I am root user, then the BAD PASSWORD text is just a warning.
