Locking the console - BlueCat Integrity - 9.5.0

Address Manager Administration Guide

Product name
BlueCat Integrity

To support STIG compliance, Address Manager and DNS/DHCP Servers support vlock for the root shell. vlock allows users to lock one or more sessions on the console, retaining the user session lock until the user re-authenticates.

To lock a root shell user session (for example, the bluecat account accessing the root shell) on the Address Manager or DNS/DHCP Server console, simply enter the command vlock to lock the current session. To resume the session, follow the console prompts to enter the password and re-authenticate.

Note: To lock all console sessions and disable VC switching, use the command vlock -a. Exercise caution if using this option, as a failure to remember the password will require a hard reset to bypass the lock.
