RE: Login restrictions in NIS environment



Hello,

Thanks for all the help on this people :-) It's very much appreciated.

I am now closer to a solution, but have a slightly different problem. IMAP
logins are restricted - I shall explain my situation.

The relevant files now look like this:

/etc/pam.d/imap:
auth       required     /lib/security/pam_stack.so service=system-auth
account    required     /lib/security/pam_stack.so service=system-auth

/etc/pam.d/login:
auth       required     /lib/security/pam_securetty.so
auth       required     /lib/security/pam_stack.so service=system-auth
auth       required     /lib/security/pam_nologin.so
account    required     /lib/security/pam_stack.so service=system-auth
password   required     /lib/security/pam_stack.so service=system-auth
session    required     /lib/security/pam_stack.so service=system-auth
session    optional     /lib/security/pam_console.so

/etc/security/access.conf:
+:root:192.168.0.2
-:root:ALL EXCEPT LOCAL
+:monitoring rhobbs nbaker:ALL
-:ALL:ALL EXCEPT LOCAL

/etc/pam.d/system-auth:
auth        required      /lib/security/pam_env.so
auth        sufficient    /lib/security/pam_unix.so likeauth nullok
auth        required      /lib/security/pam_deny.so
account     required      /lib/security/pam_unix.so
account     required      /lib/security/pam_access.so
password    required      /lib/security/pam_cracklib.so retry=3 type=
password    sufficient    /lib/security/pam_unix.so nullok use_authtok md5
shadow nis
password    required      /lib/security/pam_deny.so
session     required      /lib/security/pam_limits.so
session     required      /lib/security/pam_unix.so

So, as you can see, both login and IMAP both use system-auth for "account".

"access.conf" allows root to login from 192.168.0.2 and denies it from
everywhere else except LOCAL. It also allows "monitoring", "rhobbs" and
"nbaker" to login from anywhere, but then denies everyone else from
everywhere except LOCAL. This seems to work fine.

However, the user "monitoring" can not login via IMAP unless the following
line is commented out of "/etc/pam.d/system-auth":

     account     required      /lib/security/pam_access.so

Do you know why this is?? How can I fix it? Will any other issues arrise
like this which we won't notice until they are tested?

Thanks again,
Hobbs.
