Installed the binary RPM
(http://de.samba.org/samba/ftp/Binary_Packages/redhat/RPMS/7.1/) for
2.2.2 on my redhat 7.1 server.  I got winbind to work and my samba
server is
now using NT usernames and groups.  I was very unsure about how modify
pam.d files.  The only file I changed was the /etc/pam.d/samba file.  I
pulled this configuration from another mail post.


auth            required        /lib/security/pam_securetty.so
auth            required        /lib/security/pam_nologin.so
auth            sufficient      /lib/security/pam_winbind.so
auth            required        /lib/security/pam_pwdb.so use_first_pass
shadow nullok
account         required        /lib/security/pam_winbind.so
session         required        /lib/security/pam_pwdb.so
password        required        /lib/security/pam_pwdb.so


This seems to work fine for all but SWAT.

I am able to log into swat using a NT domain name and password
and password) but I do not have full access to changing the config file.
When I try to log in as root I receive an authorization failure.   

Hoping someone could point me in the right direction.
