nologin(4)			 File Formats			    nologin(4)

NAME
       nologin	-  message  displayed  to  users  attempting  to log on	in the
       process of a system shutdown

SYNOPSIS
       /etc/nologin

DESCRIPTION
       The  /etc/nologin file contains the message displayed to	users attempt-
       ing  to	log  on	to a  machine in the process of	being shutdown.	 After
       displaying the contents of the  nologin	file,	the   login  procedure
       terminates, preventing the user from logging onto the machine.

       This procedure is preferable to	terminating a user's session by	 shut-
       down shortly after the user has logged on.

       Logins by  super-user are not affected by this procedure.

       The message contained in	the  nologin file is editable by super-user. A
       typical	nologin	file contains a	message	similar	to:

	      NO LOGINS: System	going down in 10 minutes.
