Is it Allowed to Change Default System Accounts on Solaris?
Last updated on JULY 29, 2016
Applies to:Solaris Operating System - Version 10 3/05 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.
The system accounts (bin, sys, adm, lp, nobody, noaccess, nobody4, etc.) have no shell.
Can we assign a shell of /bin/false to these accounts and then lock these accounts in Solaris systems?
Are these roles and if so should we not add /bin/false to them as a shell and lock them? What are best practices in this regard?
