Re: Tru64 V4.0F User Account Security

hi,

1) disable user account in tru64

Execute :
# vipw

and add Nologin in password filed. If it prompt you to create hashed passwd database, answer N.

This what i did to my /etc/passwd after that.

john:NologinaKf1ZCGGeZ0/A:200:15::/home/try:/bin/ksh

Now userID john cannot login.

2) you could do this with usermod -e option. But the options are limited.

HI,

WIll the usermod -e work on the BASE security level? I know it works well on the ENHANCED level

I don't think usermod -e is going to work on Tru64 UNIX V4 running with BASE Security.

Your best bet is the edit /etc/passwd and alter the password field as described above.
