Default Pam_Tally2 User Lockouts.

Hi,



I've configured user lockouts using the pam_tally2 module but I have a
question. Is there a command that I can run that will tell me whether a
user's account is locked out from this module or not? If I run passwd -S
<user> it doesn't say that the account is locked, I'm thinking this only
works if the account was locked using usermod -L. I know I can use
pam_tally2 command to see the failed login counts, but it would be great if
there were a command that would directly tell me if a user was locked out
due to this module. Anybody know of such a command?



Thanks guys,

The command "faillog" is probably the command you want. Check the man page.
