We recently upgraded our new PAM server to 3.4.5 and now the user accounts are being disabled due to inactivity. How do I disable this feature? Both Disable Inactive After and Remove Disabled After are set to 0 days.
|PAM-CM-6001: 36 inactive user(s) have been auto deactivated for exceeding maximum allowable inactivity period of 0 day(s).|
|PAM-CM-6012: Started the user deactivation task.|
This is caused by a bug introduced in the patch to 3.4.5
Release : 3.4
To workaround the issue simply set the # of days higher than 0 (max is 730). This will not stop the timeouts for inactive users but will give some control until a patch can be provided
To re-enable bulk users you can select all and enable through the gui
This problem is fixed in 3.4.6 and 4.0.1, but the fix is NOT included in the PAM_USERS_DEACT_2022 Hotfix, which was published in January 2022 to resolve a different problem causing false user deactivations. For 3.4.5 you need to use the resolution discussed above, even with PAM_USERS_DEACT_2022 applied.
