    Thanks to everyone who responded to my question re: Solaris account
    lockout. Lots of great answers, I am going to evaluate all of the
    possibilities and come up with a solution.

    Not with stock Solaris 8, AFAIK. I'm guessing you've been tasked
    with implementing this based on a requirement from your Audit area.

    Make sure they know that there are real DOS possibilities with a
    scheme such as this, and just because this functionality was available
    on IBM mainframes, it doesn't make it a good or useful idea.
