Re: system-config-authentication quirks

I authenticate linux users via the smb pam mechanism.  When I go through

server line in the /etc/pam_smb.conf to reflect the new server machine.

I was terribly frustrated to see the server validate the users that log
and then see the client machine not properly handle the returned success.

I discovered that I had to run system-config-authentication which showed
all the correct settings except for the server line that is in
/etc/pam_smb.conf.  Once I entered the correct server name things work

How come I have to run system-config-authentication to get
authentication to work?  Why doesn't the system know that I have
allready hand entered the correct data in /etc/pam_smb.conf?

Because system-config-authentication restarts smb for you? bleh.
