Hi all,

I have installed KMS on ClearOS as a test which seems to have gone well. I just wondered if anyone else has done this as I am struggling with PAM authentication (i.e. it doesn't work)

Has anyone used ClearOS and got shared authentication working on it?

How about some more detail? What are you trying to accomplish, what's in your pam.conf etc. etc.
Or better yet: the ClearOS forum is probably able to answer the question better.

okdokay, so it turned out to be pretty simple. ClearOS stores all user accounts using OpenLDAP. Since I don't need to sync pw changes I can use PAM with a minor modification to the PAM file. Simply edited the /etc/pam.d/keriomail PAM file to say the following:

#auth required /lib/security/
#account required /lib/security/
#password required /lib/security/ nullok md5 shadow

auth required /lib/security/
account required /lib/security/
password required /lib/security/

Setup for normal PAM auth in Kerio and all started working (well I had a minor typo but noticed by checking /var/log/secure).

@gbrown100, thanks a lot! You saved me a lot of time. I was heading down the path of full LDAP integration per the outdated Kerio KB article, but this is a lot easier and is all I needed.

Thanks for posting back your solution.
