The pam_sm_acct_mgmt function is the service module's implementation
of the pam_acct_mgmt(3) interface.
This function performs the task of establishing whether the user is
permitted to gain access at this time. It should be understood that
the user has previously been validated by an authentication module.
This function checks for other things. Such things might be: the time
of day or the date, the terminal line, remote hostname, etc. This
function may also determine things like the expiration on passwords,
and respond that the user change it before continuing.
Valid flags, which may be logically OR'd with PAM_SILENT, are:
Do not emit any messages.
Return PAM_AUTH_ERR if the database of authentication tokens for
this authentication mechanism has a NULL entry for the user.
User account has expired.
The user's authentication token has expired. Before calling this
function again the application will arrange for a new one to be
given. This will likely result in a call to pam_sm_chauthtok().
The authentication token was successfully updated.
User unknown to password service.
