Shell for domain users


If we set in /etc/passwd the shell permissions for domain users to /bin/false what exactly will stop working? Thanks.

SSH logins. /bin/false is a good choice if you want mail, FTP, and possibly databases (if it’s a virtual server administrator).

Thanks! Is there a way to set it for new domain users / virtual server administrators by default? By editing manualy a file or something?

I believe you’d just make it appear first in the /etc/shells file. But I might be imagining things.

in /etc/default/useradd work only for the useradd command.

We need it by creating new virtual server administrators in virtualmin by default. please.
