comment What regulates user privileges for the `mount` command?
This seems an example where logging in as root is necessary. The second link seems really hacky. I'm cataloging my DVD's and files and some files are owned by root or other random (like nx). Disks were either completely inaccessible or worse--partially accessible (I only just noticed some rsync'd directories skipped because they were from a portable device which has every file owned by root).

comment vim: replace all character till end of line
@sardathrion; RE comment, 'nicely formatted'. Creating tables in Markdown I was able to auto fill spaces in n+1 lines, after creating line n by Visual Block selecting backwards! In other words the shape was similar to backwards 7 or vertical flipped L, or 'not nicely formatted'. lol.

comment What processes on CentOS6/RHEL regulates user login but not password itself?
I walked through PAM module pages return values looking for requirement...not met by user without any success.

comment What processes on CentOS6/RHEL regulates user login but not password itself?
Following the suggestion, I notice the pam_access.so file references access.conf. Curiously, my version is completely commented out. And, to make my failure complete I don't have a backup to verify if it was ever used. Which then reminds me of a warning in pam.d/system-auth suggesting that file is auto-generated. So, my question, if there was a hiccup from my remote administration using root, could other files in pam.d have locked out root?

comment How many authorized_keys can/should be set up in SSHD?
@terdon Yes. Ok. Exactly my Q. If not collecting from each process, then I'm pointing to which authorized_key file? for SSH in ~/**.ssh**, NX in /var/lib/nxserver/home/**.ssh**, or NFS in /srv/nfs4/mrwizard_xtian/**.ssh** One? All?

comment How many authorized_keys can/should be set up in SSHD?
"The NX user has its own set of SSH authorized keys since you connect to it over SSH. This is unusual..." You can say that again. In another post I've brought up another unusual aspect of NX setup which suggests NX is looking for a nxclient user nx to connect to a nxserver user nx with the same private key! But that's my Q and not my A, so don't quote me!

"point SSHD to a NX directory" means this file: /etc/ssh/sshd_config With this line: AuthorizedKeysfIle /usr/NX/home/nx/.ssh/authorized_keys /usr/NX/home/nx/.ssh/authorized_keys2 is looking for authorized_keys not in the user's ~/.ssh directory but in /usr/NX... for the authorized_keys file.

comment How many authorized_keys can/should be set up in SSHD?
Each set up tutorial I'm working through is setting up seperate authorized_keys (as shown by the find results in my question) by default. Are you saying the keys created by these different processes need to be gathered together and added all at once to the user's private keys? Therefore, root would have access to all, but maybe user xtian only has access to nfs in his authorized_keys?

Well the linked NX tutorial wants me to change SSHD to /usr/NX/home/nx/.ssh/authorized_keys; What would you do? Tell it to go fork itself?
