We use pam_smb for logins directly into the linux box. However, is my
current config using pam_smb as well for SMB sessions? For instance, if
you map a drive, and you give windows the credentials to map the drive,
this part of samba is not case sensitive. Its this password here we are
mainly concerned with.
is there a smb.conf directive to use pam_winbind?
