    Need to add entry to /etc/pam.d/login is there a correct method?

    Andrew Watkins



      I use Active Directory in our setup and I have always edited /etc/pam.conf to add the new entry.

      Now using /etc/pam.d I thought I would check to see what is the correct way of doing this, since at moment I edit the file directly.


      # cat /etc/pam.d/login

      auth definitive        pam_user_policy.so.1

      auth requisite        pam_authtok_get.so.1

      auth required        pam_dhkeys.so.1

      auth required        pam_unix_auth.so.1

      auth sufficient        pam_krb5.so.1         ## New Entry

      auth required        pam_unix_cred.so.1

      auth required        pam_dial_auth.so.1


      Reading the documentation I think I need to take all the above and put it into /etc/pam.conf which would override the Solaris 11 default.


      Is this correct?
