Sets the interactive limit (number of interactive users allowed on the
system), or displays the interactive limit and the current number of
Requires OPER (operator) privilege to set the login limit.
The SET LOGINS command is not retroactive. All users logged in to the
system before you enter the SET LOGINS command are not affected by the
command; however, once the limit you set is reached, no more users can
log in to the system until someone else logs out. Users with the OPER
privilege are not affected by the limit.
If you do not specify a parameter value with the /INTERACTIVE=n
qualifier, the SET LOGINS command displays the following information:
Login quotas - Interactive limit=x, Current interactive value=y
The value x represents the current interactive limit, and the
value y represents the number of users currently logged in to
Establishes the number of interactive users allowed to gain access to
the system. If the parameter n is specified, the interactive
limit is set to the value n. If the parameter n is
not specified, the SET LOGINS command displays the current interactive
limit and the number of interactive users.
$ SET LOGINS/INTERACTIVE=5
%SET-I-INTSET, login interactive limit=5, current interactive value=3
In this example, the SET LOGINS command specifies that only five
interactive users can be logged in to the system.
$ SET LOGINS/INTERACTIVE
%SET-I-INTSET, login interactive limit=9, current interactive value=6
When the SET LOGINS command is entered without a parameter, as shown in
this example, the /INTERACTIVE qualifier requests that the current
status of the login quotas be displayed. The message returned indicates
that the maximum number of interactive users allowed on the system is 9
and that the number of interactive users currently logged in is 6. No
change is made.
