There is no explicit script to do , there was no demand or value so far. You
would need to call for that functionality yourself in a python script. This
works for me with FreeIPA 4.1 for example:

# python -c "from ipalib import api; api.bootstrap(); api.finalize(); from
ipalib.plugins.user import user_pwdchars; from ipapython.ipautil import
ipa_generate_password; print ipa_generate_password(user_pwdchars)"

If you have a vision/idea why/how/when FreeIPA could be used as a Password
generated, please feel free to file RFE (and send patches :-)
