Oh no. It has been 1 day and my "bug" is not fixed! I must blog about
it so the world listens to me...
"I shouldn't have to disable an account in more than 1 way to disable it
across the board."
Let see... one step procedures for disabling the user account
1) change password for that user
2) put an asterisk "*" at the beginning of the second field (before the
encrypted password) in the file /etc/shadow.
3) set an account expiry date using chage
3) userdel is permanent one step procedure that works very well...
#2 is my preferred.
