Solaris 10 What's New

New Password Options for Nonlogin and Locked Accounts

This feature is new in the Solaris Express 10/04 release.

The passwd command has two new options, -N and -u. The -N option creates a password entry for a nonlogin account. This option is useful for accounts that should not be logged in to, but must run cron jobs. The -u option unlocks a previously locked account.

For more information, see the passwd(1) man page.
