Under Symantec Management Agent Install, on the Install Agent for UNIX, Linux and Mac, under Installation Settings, the option is available to "Use privileged account multiple passwords".  However, the passwords entered on this screen are not masked.  This does not conform to industry standards for password controls. 

Masking the password would allow the configuration of root passwords by administrators of the target systems without revealing the passwords to Symantec Administrators who would normally not require access to these systems..
