Re: Login restrictions in NIS environment

You can accomplish this by using the pam_access module. Here's the documentation on it: http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/libs/pam/Linux- PAM-html/pam-6.html#ss6.1

You can restrict access by user, groups, and computers, and you can restrict access by users from certain computers. The pam module uses the /etc/security/access.conf configuration file.

We have a NIS environment here, and all linux machines look at the same NIS

Our NIS Server, however, is also our DNS Server, and Intranet server, and Sun GridEngine master, and a few other things, and the problem is that users are perfectly able to log into this machine as if it was just another linux

We therefore need to restrict people from logging into certain machines on our network, but the same machines need to remain in NIS for those users we
want to allow.

Do you know if this can be done? If so, how?
