NAME
logins -- display account information SYNOPSIS
logins [-admopstux] [-g groups] [-l logins] DESCRIPTION
The logins utility displays information about user and system accounts. The following options are available: -a Display information about the password change and account expiration times for each account. -d Select accounts with duplicate UIDs. -g groups Select accounts that are members of the specified groups. If multiple group names are specified, they must be separated with com- mas. -l logins Select accounts matching the specified login names. If multiple names are specified, they must be separated with commas. -m Show information about secondary groups. -o Display the information for each account on a single line of colon-separated fields. -p Select accounts with no password. -s Select system accounts. These are currently defined as accounts with UIDs below 1000, plus the ``nobody'' account (UID 65534). -t Sort selected accounts by name rather than by UID. -u Select user accounts. These are currently defined as accounts with UIDs above 1000, except the ``nobody'' account (UID 65534). -x Display information about each account's home directory and shell. If multiple selection options are specified, all accounts matching any of the selection criteria will be displayed. If no selection options are specified, all accounts will be displayed. SEE ALSO

NAME
lslogins - display information about known users in the system SYNOPSIS
lslogins [options] [-s|-u[=UID]] [-g groups] [-l logins] DESCRIPTION
Examine the wtmp and btmp logs, /etc/shadow (if necessary) and /etc/passwd and output the desired data. The default action is to list info about all the users in the system. OPTIONS
Mandatory arguments to long options are mandatory for short options too. -a, --acc-expiration Display data about the date of last password change and the account expiration date (see shadow(5) for more info). (Requires root privileges.) --btmp-file path Alternate path for btmp. -c, --colon-separate Separate info about each user with a colon instead of a newline. -e, --export Output data in the format of NAME=VALUE. -f, --failed Display data about the users' last failed login attempts. -G, --supp-groups Show information about supplementary groups. -g, --groups=groups Only show data of users belonging to groups. More than one group may be specified; the list has to be comma-separated. Note that relation between user and group may be invisible for primary group if the user is not explicitly specify as group member (e.g. in /etc/group). If the command lslogins scans for groups than it uses groups database only, and user database with primary GID is not used at all. -h, --help Display help information and exit. -L, --last Display data containing information about the users' last login sessions. -l, --logins=logins Only show data of users with a login specified in logins (user names or user IDS). More than one login may be specified; the list has to be comma-separated. -n, --newline Display each piece of information on a separate line. --noheadings Do not print a header line. --notruncate Don't truncate output. -o, --output list Specify which output columns to print. Use --help to get a list of all supported columns. -p, --pwd Display information related to login by password (see also -afL). -r, --raw Raw output (no columnation). -s, --system-accs Show system accounts. These are by default all accounts with a UID below 1000 (non-inclusive), with the exception of either nobody or nfsnobody (UID 65534). This hardcoded default maybe overwritten by parameters SYS_UID_MIN and SYS_UID_MAX in the file /etc/login.defs. --time-format type Display dates in short, full or iso format. The default is short, this time format is designed to be space efficient and human readable. -u, --user-accs Show user accounts. These are by default all accounts with UID above 1000 (inclusive), with the exception of either nobody or nfs- nobody (UID 65534). This hardcoded default maybe overwritten by parameters UID_MIN and UID_MAX in the file /etc/login.defs. -V, --version Display version information and exit. --wtmp-file path Alternate path for wtmp. -Z, --context Display the users' security context. -z, --print0 Delimit user entries with a nul character, instead of a newline. NOTES
The default UID thresholds are read from /etc/login.defs. EXIT STATUS
0 if OK, 1 if incorrect arguments specified, 2 if a serious error occurs (e.g. a corrupt log). SEE ALSO
