ilogind(1M)ilogind(1M)NAMEilogind - Interface for libpam_dce.sl and libnss_dce.sl with DCE
is an interface daemon for libpma_dce.sl (see pam_dce(5)),and lib‐
nss_dce.sl with DCE (/opt/dce/sbin/ilogind).

acts with DCE and services the requests. The results of these requests
are returned to libpam_dce.sl.

A file named DEBUG can be created in the directory with the setuid bit
set, for debugging purposes. So, if ilogind dumps core, it can be
can be used to set the cache limit. The default value for this variable
specifies the life of the password/group entry, which is 60 seconds.
In unix, for any calls, if the length of each line in /etc/group file
exceeds the limit specified by LINE_MAX, it will return a NULL value.
Refer group(4) for more details. However, DCE will return a valid entry
with members upto the size specified by the return value of
sysconf(_SC_GETGR_R_SIZE_MAX). This value is analogous to the LINE_MAX
value. In case of file, the number of members in a group are limited
to 50. Members exceeding the count 50 will be discarded. Also, entries
with duplicate group names are not supported in the override file.
Configuration file for pluggable authentication modules
Configuration file for the name-service switch
was developed by Hewlett Packard.
