Login restrictions are limitations on user accounts that control access to the network. These restrictions can be set in Novell iManager or ConsoleOne® for each user and include the following:
Requiring a password
You can specify its minimum length, whether it must be changed and how often, whether it must be unique, and whether the user can change it. You can also require strong passwords. See Section 6.2, Managing Passwords.
Setting the number of logins with an expired password and the number of incorrect login attempts allowed
Setting account limits such as an account balance or expiration date
Limiting disk space for each user by specifying the maximum blocks available for each user on a volume
Specifying the number of simultaneous connections a user can have
Specifying (by node address) which workstations users can log in on
Restricting the times when users can log in (you can assign all users the same hours, or you can restrict users individually)
When a user violates login restrictions by entering an incorrect password or the exceeding the number of logins with an expired password, the account is disabled and no one can log in using that username. This prevents unauthorized users from logging in.
