PAM_NOLOGIN(8)          FreeBSD System Manager's Manual         PAM_NOLOGIN(8)

NAME
     pam_nologin - NoLogin PAM module

SYNOPSIS
     [service-name] module-type control-flag pam_nologin [options]

DESCRIPTION
     The NoLogin service module for PAM, pam_nologin provides functionality
     for only one PAM category: account management.  In terms of the
     module-type parameter, this is the ``account'' feature.

   NoLogin Account Management Module
     The NoLogin account management component, pam_sm_acct_mgmt(), verifies
     whether logins are administratively disabled via nologin(5).  It returns
     success if the user's login class has an "ignorenologin" capability
     specified in login.conf(5) or the nologin(5) file does not exist.  If
     neither condition is met, then the contents of nologin(5) are echoed
     before failure is returned.  The location of nologin(5) is specified by a
     "nologin" capability in login.conf(5), which defaults to
     /var/run/nologin.

     The following options may be passed to the module:

     debug        syslog(3) debugging information at LOG_DEBUG level.

     no_warn      suppress warning messages to the user.  These messages
                  include reasons why the user's login attempt was declined.
