When I try to login my lfs with user name sshd. I found this message
in /var/log/auth.log .

Aug 13 15:05:10 lfs_xxx sshd[5674]: User sshd not allowed because
account is locked

But when I use bin and nobody, I didn't get this message. And there
are some different in /etc/shadow .

root::15564:0:99999:7:::
bin:x:15564:0:99999:7:::
nobody:x:15564:0:99999:7:::
sshd:!:15564:0:99999:7:::
apache:!:15564:0:99999:7:::
fcron:!:15564:0:99999:7:::
mysql:!:15564:0:99999:7:::

Is it normal ?
