The NoLogin service module for PAM, pam_nologin provides functionality for only one PAM category: account management. In terms of the module-type parameter, this is the ``account'' feature. NoLogin Account Management Module The NoLogin account management component, pam_sm_acct_mgmt(), verifies whether logins are administratively disabled via nologin(5). It returns success if the user's login class has an "ignorenologin" capability spec- ified in login.conf(5) or the nologin(5) file does not exist. If neither condition is met, then the contents of nologin(5) are echoed before fail- ure is returned. The location of nologin(5) is specified by a "nologin" capability in login.conf(5), which defaults to /var/run/nologin. The following options may be passed to the module: debug syslog(3) debugging information at LOG_DEBUG level. no_warn suppress warning messages to the user. These messages include reasons why the user's login attempt was declined.


syslog(3), login.conf(5), nologin(5), pam.conf(5), pam(8)
