RE: LDAP Authentication



Hello, I have a question about Linux PAM framework going forward.  New distributions seem to ship with /etc/pam.d, I haven't seen /etc/pam.conf used by anyone on the Linux side.  But http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/libs/pam/Linux-PAM-html/pam-7.html (the Linux PAM SysAdmin's guide) has nothing on this, in fact it doesn't even mention /etc/pam.d.  I would actually like to put the entire system-wide PAM configuration into /etc/pam.conf as opposed to keeping everything separate (as done with /etc/pam.d/*).  My question is, will /etc/pam.conf be supported in the future, and is it safe to wipe out /etc/pam.d/* in favor of consolidating everything in one file (/etc/pam.conf)?

TIA.

Hi,
this answered the other day.
Configure /etc/pam.d/system-auth with this line:

account     required      /lib/security/$ISA/pam_unix.so
# patch from bug #55193 at bugzilla.redhat.com
account     [default=bad success=ok user_unknown=ignore 
service_err=ignore system_err=ignore authinfo_unavail=ignore] 
/lib/security/$ISA/pam_ldap.so
                                                                                

It works for me in RH9

HTH
Oliver
