Error description

  • Hardstop.sh has no effect on RedHat 7 when the username is

    The PS command changes the behaviour. As a result, the

Local fix

  • In Line 55 of hardstop.sh change
    <     HANDLE=´id -u "$USER"´
    to
    >     HANDLE=${USER:0:7}
    to just grab the 1st 7 bytes of the username.
