Is this an old machine that has been upgraded? From /usr/src/UPDATING: 20070610: The pam_nologin(8) module ceases to provide an authentication function and starts providing an account management function. Consequent changes to /etc/pam.d should be brought in using mergemaster(8). Third-party files in /usr/local/etc/pam.d may need manual editing as follows. Locate this line (or similar): auth required pam_nologin.so no_warn and change it according to this example: account required pam_nologin.so no_warn That is, the first word needs to be changed from "auth" to "account". The new line can be moved to the account section within the file for clarity. Not updating pam.conf(5) files will result in nologin(5) ignored by the respective services. -- Dan Nelson [EMAIL PROTECTED] _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
