    Setup an additional primary authentication method on the relevant user
    account.
    You'll need to define the additional primary authentication method in

    /etc/security/login.cfg

    and create somekind of secure script or program to return 0 or 1
    depending on how many concurrent logins you want.

    NB if you are accessing this account via some versions of ssh this won't
    work because ssh tends to use generic Unix authentication and thus
    ignores AIX authentication methods. AFAIK the latest version of OpenSSH
    works correctly.

    You could probably do something similar using PAM but I've never tried.

    Default Restricting number of logins

    Hi,

    Hope this is a simple request. It has been a long time since I worked on AIX
    machines and my memory has faded. Can anyone please tell me if there is a
    way of limiting the number of logins that a user can have?

    Thanks
    regards

    Hi Adrian,



    As far as I know, there is no functions built in the AIX to do what you
    asked. However, there is an article about it at the link below :



    https://techsupport.services.ibm.com/server/aix.techTips



    Look into AIX 4.3 and search for "login restriction"





    Hope this help
