About /etc/pam.d/login file configuration

Hello Masters,

I'm installing Oracle 11gr2 RAC on a 2-node cluster. On each node of the cluster, I've installed Oracle Enterprise Linux 5. For the configuration of each node, we have to add the following line:
session required
to the /etc/pam.d/login file.

On the first node I'm configuring (before cloning it to have the second node), when I opened the /etc/pam.d/login file, I noticed that it contained the line

session required close

I would want to know if I should replace this line
session   required close with the line
session required,
or if I should add the line session required above (or below) the line session   required close .
