smb.conf PAM Configuration

There is an option in smb.conf called obey pam restrictions. The following is from the online help for this option in SWAT:

When Samba is configured to enable PAM support (i.e., --with-pam), this parameter will control whether or not Samba should obey PAM's account and session management directives. The default behavior is to use PAM for clear-text authentication only and to ignore any account or session management. Samba always ignores PAM for authentication in the case of encrypt passwords = yes. The reason is that PAM modules cannot support the challenge/response authentication mechanism needed in the presence of SMB password encryption.

Default: obey pam restrictions = no
