Re: check winbind AD group memberships

ok i'll give it a go. We already have winbind working with the AD groups via getent group, and did indeed edit the nsswitch file, it's just that the pam_group documentation i saw was mentioning the groups needing to be in /etc/security/group.conf

Although I haven't had to configure winbind against AD, I'm pretty
sure you need to configure NSS to use winbind and afterwards you can
use pam_group. That is, you should be able to add a "winbind" entry to
your "group" entry on your /etc/nsswitch.conf as long as you have the
associated libnss_winbind.so installed on your system.

Ensure that you are properly seeing the groups (getent group) before
returning to configuring PAM.

When using linux winbind authentication against active directory, is there a
way to check membership of an AD group using pam ?

As far as i know pam_group only checks against local groups.

Any help would be appreciated.
