NAME

       nologin - prevent unprivileged users from logging into the system

DESCRIPTION

       If  the file /etc/nologin exists and is readable, login(1) will allow access only to root.
       Other users will be shown the contents of this file and  their  logins  will  be  refused.
       This provides a simple way of temporarily disabling all unprivileged logins.

FILES

       /etc/nologin
