Re: any imapct on Tru64 Unix

Hi,

I haven't tried to lock these accounts.
If you want to make sure that they can't login, you could set u_pwd to a bogus value like *Nologin.

It seems like lp can be locked with u_lock, take a look at section 4.9.4:

Bobbi Spitzberg has written a guide on securing tru64:

Use it as inspiration (it is a bit extreme:)
