Introduction

To enable users to authenticate to an NT4 or Active Directory (AD) domain, PAM must be able to locate the pam_winbind.so library provided by Samba. Create a link in the PAM modules directory to enable PAM to use Winbind.



Determining the Platform

To determine the operating system's platform:

# uname -m



Verifying If PAM Support Is Enabled

To verify if Samba was build with PAM support, enter:

# smbd -b | grep "WITH_PAM"
   WITH_PAM

If the WITH_PAM option is not shown in the command's output, Samba was built without PAM support, because:

  • The configure script failed to locate the PAM headers.
  • The --without-pam option was passed to the configure script.

To enable PAM support:

  • Install the PAM headers. For example, on Red Hat Enterprise Linux, the headers are provided in the pam-devel package.
  • Rebuild Samba without passing the --without-pam option to the configure script. For details about building Samba, see Build Samba from Source.



Locating the pam_winbind.so Library

If you built Samba, the location of the pam_winbind.so library was set using the configure script's --with-pammodulesdir parameter. The default location is /usr/local/samba/lib/security/pam_winbind.so.

To locate the library, run:

# find / -type f -name pam_winbind.so
/usr/local/samba/lib/security/pam_winbind.so

Link the library from this directory to your operating system's PAM module directory.
