Hi Team,

I have upgraded samba from 4.3.11 to 4.5.0 after that ftp authentication
for local users not working.

I know pam_smbpass module removed from 4.4. Is there any alternative for

My pam configuration for ftp is shown below

auth       sufficient    /lib/security/pam_smbpass.so   krb5_auth
account    required     /lib/security/pam_nologin.so
account    required     /lib/security/pam_smbpass.so
password   required     /lib/security/pam_smbpass.so
session    required     /lib/security/pam_unix.so

passdb backend= smbpasswd

Help me to overcome this issue.
