Description Steve Grubb 2015-11-25 17:38:23 EST
Description of problem:
When a system is configured to use pam_lastlog to lock inactive accounts, there doesn't appear to be a designed way to unlock or reset the account without changing the configuration or deleting the lastlog file.

It would be very helpful to have a utility that can reset the lastlog entry for a specified user leaving other system users untouched. The utility should also record an audit event (AUDIT_ACCT_UNLOCK) when performing the action.
Comment 1 Tomas Mraz 2016-01-18 10:25:30 EST
I'm currently planning to implement this functionality in the lastlog utility of shadow-utils.
Comment 2 Tomas Mraz 2016-02-03 08:56:58 EST
The build shadow-utils-4.2.1-6.fc24 in Rawhide contains lastlog command with the functionality added including the auditing.
