We discuss here only pam_unix.so, for which the password file or it's equivalent (provided with NSS) IS the only way :-)Dan Yefimov wrote:No, I miss nothing here. Whatever prefix password hash begins with, if the password hash derived from the string obtained from the user isn't equal to what is contained in shadow, access is denied, no matter why. Prefix differences among different systems is unimportant here.But that has to do with authentication, not whether the account is locked."Locking an account" here means "invalidating password hash". So effectively that means "disabling password authentication for account", nothing more.That would make sense if the password file was the one and only way to authenticate so you could usurp the concept to control the account - but it isn't when you use PAM...
