i can see diff built in account on my esxi host..are under /etc/shadow
root -with password
nobody -with no password
nfsnobody-with no password
dcui-with no password
daemon-with no password
vimusr-with no password
vpxusr -with password
i have been asked to set deny logon for account dont have password set..as given in bold above
so have mentioned these 5 id in a file[login.id] and set deny logon by putting module..as given below...[attached]
after this i was unable to login to esxi using putty session .so i made the revert using my existing console
pls advice if there is any dependcy due to above 5 account with no password on esxi and is it not applicable to esxi ?
and what are the uses of diff account we have in esxi ?
