PAM_NOLOGIN(8)		  BSD 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 authentication	service	module for PAM,	pam_nologin provides
     functionality for only one	PAM category: authentication.  In terms	of the
     module-type parameter, this is the	"auth" feature.	 It also provides a
     null function for session management.

   NoLogin Authentication Module
     The NoLogin authentication	component (pam_sm_authenticate()), always re-
     turns success for the superuser, and returns success for all other	users
     if	the file /var/run/nologin does not exist.  If /var/run/nologin does
     exist, then its contents are echoed to non-superusers before failure is
     returned.	If a "nologin" capability is specified in login.conf(5), then
     the file thus specified is	used instead.  This usually defaults to
     /var/run/nologin.

     The following options may be passed to the	authentication 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 authentication attempt was	declined.
