Free CompTIA Linux+ XK0-005 Practice Question

A new junior system administrator has been tasked with reviewing user accounts on a vital Linux server. While inspecting the /etc/passwd file, they noticed an account entry that does not have a corresponding /home directory. Which of the following are potential explanations for this situation?

  • The account's default shell is set to /usr/sbin/nologin, which implies that no home directory was created when the account was added.

  • The account has an expired password and, therefore, the home directory was removed automatically.

  • The user associated with the account has been assigned to an incorrect group, which is why the home directory is missing.

  • The account is intended for a system service or process and is not designed for regular user login activities.
