Re: pam.d [Re: LDAP Authentication]

I think /etc/pam.d/ is newer.
What is done now is that many files in the /etc/pam.d/ directory refers to
the file /etc/pam.d/system-auth file
So, changing the system-auth file, does indeed change all the other "services"
For example, imap and pop3 uses the system-auth file, like many(if not all) services.

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)?

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
