Hi Fizan

The following example reports all abnormal status for all local accounts.

#/usr/sbin/userstat -a
joe nullpw

Check below link in details as follows,

Re: how to check status of an user account

Hi,

Check a user's password status
#passwd -s user1

Check the status of all users
#passwd -sa

If you are looking for user's information then use the below command
#finger user1

Re: how to check status of an user account

Hi,

#passwd -s

If this returns the staus as LK means it is locked. Other possiblities are,

PS=Passworded
NP=no password
Best wishes,

Ganesh.

Re: how to check status of an user account

To show the password attributes for all the /etc/passwd account entries,
use the â a and â s options. Thus who is locked or PS (PS means normal pwd account)

passwd -as

OR for release HP UX 11iv3


userstat

Hi fizan,

If the server is not trusted, then following command will help.

passwd -s
LK shows the account is locked.

If it is trusted, then
/usr/lbin/getprpw
and check for lockout parmater. it should not contain any 1 digit in its value. those all should be 0s.

Hi,

use below command:

#/usr/lbin/getprpw -l

getprpw is for getting present password status of the user , if you would like to modfify any of the parameter in getprpw use below command:

#/usr/lbin/modprpw -m

Vijay.

Taifur -

I dont find /usr/sbin/userstat on any of our 11.23 machines. Do you know how it gets installed?

Hi:

It's documented in the December 2007 11.23 manpages but not in the original September 2004 ones. This leads me to believe that your installations were made with early OE media and have not been updated to the more/most current versions.
