How to disable the virtual consoles in RHEL 6.1?


How can I disable the virtual consoles (<Ctrl><Alt><F1> to <Ctrl><Alt><F6>) in RHEL 6.1?
Is it enough to comment out (put a # in front of) the line ACTIVE_CONSOLES=/dev/tty[1-6] in the file /etc/sysconfig/init?

I do not want that users can initiate virtual consoles.
Can I disable them for users and leave it for root?

You should take a look at the /etc/security/acces.conf file
