Linux NIS / NIS+ Tutorial
Previous Page Home Next Page

7.6.3. PAM

Linux-PAM 0.75 and newr does support Shadow passwords over NIS if you use the Module or if you install the extra Module. Old systems using pam_pwdb/libpwdb (for example Red Hat Linux 5.x) need to change the /etc/pam.d/* entries. All pam_pwdb rules should be replaced through a pam_unix_* module.

An example /etc/pam.d/login file looks like:

auth     requisite            nullok #set_secrpc
auth     required
auth     required
auth     required
auth     required
account  required
password required          nullok
password required            nullok use_first_pass use_authtok
session  required            none # debug or trace
session  required
