Description Ben Woodard 2002-05-02 22:30:40 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:0.9.9) Gecko/20020326

Description of problem:
When pam shells checks if the user has a shell in /etc/shells it doesn't
adequately log its results. As a result debugging problems can take a long time.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. give a user a shell which is not in /etc/shells
2. try to login with that user
3. look in the log files to see why the user can't login.

Actual Results:  Nothing is put in the log files

Expected Results:  something is put in the log files telling the SA why the user
was disallowed access.
