NAME


pam_smb_passwd - SMB password management module

SYNOPSIS


pam_smb_passwd.so.1


DESCRIPTION


The pam_smb_passwd module enhances the PAM password management stack.
This functionality supports the changing or adding of SMB passwords for
local users. The CIFS server uses SMB passwords to authenticate connected
users. This module includes the pam_sm_chauthtok(3PAM) function.


The pam_sm_chauthtok() function accepts the following flags:

PAM_PRELIM_CHECK

Always returns PAM_IGNORE.


PAM_SILENT

Suppresses messages.


PAM_UPDATE_AUTHTOK

Updates or creates a new CIFS local LM/NTLM hash for the user that is
specified in PAM_USER by using the authentication information found
in PAM_AUTHTOK. The LM hash is only created if the smbd/lmauth_level
property value of the smb/server service is set to 3 or less.
PAM_IGNORE is returned if the user is not in the local /etc/passwd
repository.


The following options can be passed to the pam_smb_passwd module:

debug

Produces syslog(3C) debugging information at the LOG_AUTH or
LOG_DEBUG level.


nowarn

Suppresses warning messages.


FILES


/var/smb/smbpasswd

Stores SMB passwords for users.


ERRORS


Upon successful completion of pam_sm_chauthtok(), PAM_SUCCESS is
returned. The following error codes are returned upon error:

PAM_AUTHTOK_ERR

Authentication token manipulation error


PAM_AUTHTOK_LOCK_BUSY

SMB password file is locked


PAM_PERM_DENIED

Permissions are insufficient for accessing the SMB password file


PAM_SYSTEM_ERR
