RE: radius authentication



Hi,

can somebody explain what does this error message means:

Thu Jan 23 17:33:39 2003: [24416] pam_pass: pam_authenticate: User not known to the underlying authentication module
Thu Jan 23 17:33:39 2003: [24416] unix_pass: pam_pass for "RADTEST" failed

background:
I'was trying to setup a radius server on linux.
the system is redhat 7.2 , radiusd-2.1.va from
livingston that I compiled from the source rpm with
default options.

# /usr/sbin/radiusd -v
/usr/sbin/radiusd: Livingston RADIUS 2.1.va.1 2001/7/5  NDBM NOSHADOW flat_users

the server then started with the following options:
#/usr/sbin/radiusd -x -b -f /etc/raddb/radius.sdw

the intention is to specify -f , to use alternative shadow password files.

while this setup works fine on redhat 6.2 , for redhat 7.2i or redhat 8 
I got the following error from log

Thu Jan 23 17:33:39 2003: [24416] pam_pass: pam_authenticate: User not known to thed underlying authentication module
Thu Jan 23 17:33:39 2003: [24416] unix_pass: pam_pass for "RADTEST" failed


some observations: 
1. checked /etc/pam.d/radiusd , they are the same as redhata 6.2
2. if I have the user in the  regular /etc/shadow file, the authtication for "RADTEST" works fine
