There is a way to lock a user using a api call like nscus ? (Unix aix 7.1 , security 8.3.2)
Yes, you can - at least if by lock you mean make a user inactive.
The code is generally like this:
PFUNCTION := ‘MO’
PUSERID := #IN-USER
PLOCKDATES(1,1) := DATX
CALLNAT ‘NSCUS’ PFUNCTION PUSERID PUSERID2 PRC PPFKEY()
PPARM PPARM1 PPARM2 PTEXT(*) PPARM3 PPARM4
This is based on one of the PGMUSnnn examples.
Thank you Brian, i will develop a daily batch routine to verify users who dont logon for “n” days and lock it out (i was thinking in the same type of lock when a user type a wrong password n times) but your solution looks better.
