Description John Newbigin 2002-12-06 06:12:32 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.2.1) Gecko/20021130

Description of problem:
obey pam restrictions = Yes
does not work with the shipped version of /etc/pam.d/samba
The file needs a session line to make it work

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. edit /etc/samba/smb.conf and set obey pam restrictions = Yes 
2. use smbclient (or anything else) to try and connect to the samba server

Actual Results:  This error is recorded in %m.log
[2002/12/06 15:36:05, 0] passdb/pampass.c:smb_pam_error_handler(72)
  smb_pam_error_handler: PAM: session setup failed : System error

Expected Results:  No errors.

Additional info:

session required        /lib/security/ service=system-auth

to /etc/pam.d/samba will solve the problem.

I don't know if this is still a problem in 7.3 or 8.0 but I though I would add a
bug report to help anyone else who might come across the problem.

I am using encrypt passwords = Yes but I don't think that will make any difference.
