NAME
       pam_smb_passwd - SMB password management module

SYNOPSIS
       pam_smb_passwd.so.1

DESCRIPTION
       The  pam_smb_passwd  module enhances the PAM password management stack. This functionality
       supports the changing or adding of SMB passwords for local Solaris users. The Solaris CIFS
       server  uses  SMB  passwords to authenticate connected Solaris users. This module includes
       the pam_sm_chauthtok(3PAM) function.

       The pam_sm_chauthtok() function accepts the following flags:

       PAM_PRELIM_CHECK

	   Always returns PAM_IGNORE.

       PAM_SILENT

	   Suppresses messages.

       PAM_UPDATE_AUTHTOK

	   Updates or creates a new CIFS local LM/NTLM hash for the user  that	is  specified  in
	   PAM_USER  by using the authentication information found in PAM_AUTHTOK. The LM hash is
	   only created if the smbd/lmauth_level property value of the smb/server service is  set
	   to  3  or  less.  PAM_IGNORE  is  returned if the user is not in the local /etc/passwd
	   repository.

       The following options can be passed to the pam_smb_passwd module:

       debug

	   Produces syslog(3C) debugging information at the LOG_AUTH or LOG_DEBUG level.

       nowarn

	   Suppresses warning messages.

FILES
       /var/smb/smbpasswd

	   Stores SMB passwords for Solaris users.

ERRORS
       Upon successful completion of pam_sm_chauthtok(), PAM_SUCCESS is returned.  The	following
       error codes are returned upon error:

       PAM_AUTHTOK_ERR

	   Authentication token manipulation error

       PAM_AUTHTOK_LOCK_BUSY

	   SMB password file is locked

       PAM_PERM_DENIED

	   Permissions are insufficient for accessing the SMB password file

       PAM_SYSTEM_ERR

	   System error

       PAM_USER_UNKNOWN

	   User is unknown

       See the attributes(5) man page for descriptions of the following attributes:

       |      ATTRIBUTE TYPE	     |	    ATTRIBUTE VALUE	   |
       +-----------------------------+-----------------------------+
       |Interface Stability	     |Committed 		   |
       +-----------------------------+-----------------------------+

NOTES
       The interfaces in libpam(3LIB) are MT-Safe only if each thread within  the  multi-threaded
       application uses its own PAM handle.

       The pam_smb_passwd.so.1 module should be stacked following all password qualification mod-
       ules in the PAM password stack.
