pam_tally2 not lock user?

Postby jabalv » 2011/08/01 11:37:07

Hello. I`m trying to set PAM to lock user account. I tried lock my user, got confirm, that user is locked.
But when I try correct password, I got logged in into system only if user is locked. What problem can be here?

Here is my /etc/pam.d/system-auth

Problem solved. Need correct place for lines, pam_tally2.so line need to put after pam_env.so module.

Code: Select all

auth        required      pam_env.so
auth        required      pam_tally2.so deny=3 onerr=fail



Is there is possible to make ssh automatically understand that user is locked and do not offer password input possibilities, but show warning?

AFAIK you can set ChallengeResponseAuthentication to yes in /etc/ssh/sshd_config and it will be showing following warning:
Account locked due to X failed logins
However it will keep prompting for password anyway.
