OpenSSH, PAM and pam_radius_auth



I'm trying to get RADIUS authentication to work on one of our systems,
but keep running into problems.  For some reason it seems that the
account system does not allow the user to login, and once the user has
been authenticated, it drops the connection by not allowing sshd to
establish credentials for the user.

It seems that OpenSSH first tries to authetnicate the user with an
empty password (""), because if I set an empty password both in the
local /etc/passwd, and on the RADIUS server, sshd is able to establish
credentials for the user.

Note that even with a non-empty password the authentication works,
the daemon gets and OK from the radius server.  There's a user with that
given name in /etc/passwd.

Anyone ideas about what could be wrong here?


Here's the debug output from OpenSSH:
