I have followed below guidelines which is a little bit outdated:

It is mounted successfully by editing /etc/security/pam_mount.conf.xml
instead of /etc/security/pam_mount.conf, and follow the direction in
the /etc/security/pam_mount.conf.xml.

Now user could change samba password using usermin, and then followed
by changeing its own password to match, and the share would mount

Thanks again,
