how to create hidden account in centos
iam using 32bit centos 6.2 on my machine, and i want to create hidden user 'test' , i mean to say while iam starting my centos at GUI mode, at that time that username 'test' should not appear at list of users, only i can use that username is command line. logging in through other username.
i have try this:
#passwd -l test
and i restart the system at that time username 'test' doen't appears but while iam trying to switch user test in command line such error occurs:
su: incorrect password
so i was not able to login. After that i know
passwd -l test = it locks the user 'test'
passwd -u test = it unlocks the user 'test'
can anybody guide me or suggest me how to create hidden account in my local machine, i'll be greatful and any kinds of ideas, suggestions and guidelines are welcome.
THANK YOU IN ADVANCE
