[Samba] Looking for AIX Users of Winbind -- Authorization and SSHProblems

I have the same setup, but is it working with SSH and do you have away to
restrict *which* AD users can log into the box?

That is what I'm interested in here.  Any AD user can log on with telnet,
ftp, or su right now.


I don't think pam_access exists for AIX.  Searching for it literally brought
me back to this very thread.

We are using winbind on AIX, and this is my documentation on how I got
it to work:


cp -p /opt/pware/samba/3.0.28/lib/security/WINBIND /usr/lib/security

edit /usr/lib/security/methods.cfg and add

        program = /usr/lib/security/WINBIND
        options = authonly

edit the default stanza in /etc/security/user to have

        SYSTEM = "WINBIND OR compat"
