Also, another thing is that a lot of what I was trying to do was not only add user classes, but also restrict users from accessing my server unless they were in the wheel group. Got that done with /etc/login.access by adding: - -ALL except wheel:ALL Now since I mentioned it though I was wondering, does this create issues for secondary daemon accounts (www, mysql, etc)?
