NAME
       pam_unix_account - PAM account management module for UNIX

SYNOPSIS
       pam_unix_account.so.1

DESCRIPTION
       pam_unix_account module implements pam_sm_acct_mgmt(), which provides functionality to the
       PAM account management stack. The module provides functions to validate	that  the  user's
       account is not locked or expired and that the user's password does not need to be changed.
       The  module  retrieves  account	information  from  the	configured  databases	in   nss-
       witch.conf(4).

       The following options can be passed to the module:

       debug		syslog(3C) debugging information at the LOG_DEBUG level

       nowarn		Turn off warning messages

       server_policy	If  the  account  authority  for the user, as specified by PAM_USER, is a
			server, do not apply the Unix policy from the passwd entry  in	the  name
			service switch.

NOTES
       The interfaces in libpam(3LIB) are MT-Safe only if each thread within  the  multi-threaded
       application uses its own PAM handle.

       Attempts  to  validate  locked accounts are logged via syslog(3C) to the LOG_AUTH facility
       with a LOG_NOTICE severity.
