S+ installation: auto-fill parmfile passphrase

There is no need to fill in a passphrase that will never be typed again. The installation process should automagically create a passphrase instead.

    Thank you for your patience as we've progressed with the enhancement request backlog for Connect:Direct. The requirement to enter a one-time passphrase to initially configure Secure+ has been removed from all modern Connect:Direct systems so I will close this request out as being delivered.

    Sincerely,
