NOLOGIN(4) File Formats and Configurations NOLOGIN(4)
nologin - message displayed to users attempting to log on in the process
of a system shutdown
file contains the message displayed to users attempting
to log on to a machine in the process of being shutdown. After
displaying the contents of the nologin
file, the login
terminates, preventing the user from logging onto the machine.
This procedure is preferable to terminating a user's session by shutdown
shortly after the user has logged on.
Logins by super-user are not affected by this procedure.
The message contained in the nologin
file is editable by super-user. A
file contains a message similar to: NO LOGINS: System going down in 10 minutes.
