I'm a beginner with Linux system and have had Prof. to install and maintain our system (Suse 10).
But now I need to change supply and I got told that it is possible to place a auto password (or auto login) so somebody do not need to know password in root anymore. So that when I change our admin password, does that not matter and they will get in anyhow.

How can I look up if there is install any auto password and how to delete them ?

Thanks for the help

can you clarify what you mean by "change supply " ?

do you mean automatically created users ?

can you post /etc/passwd here ?

Oh yes - sorry not "supply" but supplier (does that made the hole Suse setup and installation).
I need to make sure that they can not get online in, because I do know that they can today. And cahnge Password is only working if I sure that they not have a "auto login / password".

I would like to post /etc/password - but I just need to know how to get hold on this kind of information.

Sorry but I'm new with Linux and therefor have those Prof. to set it up.

`cat /etc/passwd` will display /etc/passwd on your screen.
