Re: USER LOGIN ISSUE

Hi,

1st how many user licences you have for this system did you check that "uname -a" will show that.
2nd now how many users are login "who -q" what is the output ?
Is this error came for all user or some specific user ?

Re: USER LOGIN ISSUE

Hi,

Uname -a => unlimited user license

who -q => 50 users are connected.

Getting the error msg only to a particular user (araj).

Note: If i removed .login and .profile from the user home directory. I can get the $ prompt for that user.

I normally used to copy .login and .profile from existing users, its customised thing.

Re: USER LOGIN ISSUE

Hi Oprakash,

It looks like the message is from some script ,not seems to be a system generated one .

Check users's .profile and see any script is incorporated with that check the login sessions

However You can check the /etc/default/security for an entry

NUMBER_OF_LOGINS_ALLOWED

Hi,

Also attached .login for your reference.

I am not able to find

# pg security
MIN_PASSWORD_LENGTH=8
PASSWORD_HISTORY_DEPTH=8

Re: USER LOGIN ISSUE

This IS from a script for sure. Look for "TOO MANY" line in .profile of the user and make modifications appropriately.

May be an earlier sysadmin put in this script and you took over recently. A wild guess there.

Look for reasons why he did that before attempting to remove it.

Hi,

Some time what happned users are forget to logout from the system, in that case some script is running behind if a perticular user is having more then 5 or 8 login into the system then system should not allow for a new login.

do who -u | grep araj
if all "araj" logins are idel, means old logins then kill all of them.

Re: USER LOGIN ISSUE

Hi,

The attached .profile seems good...


Are you sure that .profile you atttached is from /home/araj and complete?

#who |grep -i araj
#grep -i "too" /etc/profile
