[root at fedora pam.d]# wbinfo -g
i'm running fedora core 3
i've never used 'getent' before what do i do there?
but i have a local account called 'pma' with the password 'unix' set locally
and the password 'ads' set on active directory, i can set my pam module so i
can login with the username 'pma and password 'ads'. so i think my winbind
is working fine.
ps: i tried that pam module below, same thing happened i can login with my
ads password, but i need a local account without a local account it wont let
i'm using squirriel mail and '/etc/pam.d/dovecot' to test it out.

For samba on debian this works:
auth sufficient pam_winbind.so
auth required pam_unix.so nullok
account sufficient pam_winbind.so
account required pam_unix.so
session required pam_unix.so
password required pam_unix.so
Also what do the getent & wbinfo tests show? Do they work?
