NOLOGIN(8)              OpenBSD System Manager's Manual             NOLOGIN(8)

     nologin - politely refuse a login


     Nologin displays a message that an account is not available and exits
     non-zero.  It is intended as a replacement shell field for accounts that
     have been disabled.

     If the file /etc/nologin.txt exists, nologin displays its contents to the
     user instead of the default message.


     The nologin command appeared in 4.4BSD.

OpenBSD 2.3                    Febuary 15, 1997                              1
