I have a debian VM setup inside VirtualBox and I also have a 2003 server setup in a VM as well I was playing with getting linux to join a 2003 AD as a client for SSO, etc.... Well I followed a tutorial and it involved playing with PAM config files adding the winbind module to pam for use as authentication. I successfully joined the etch system to the domain shutdown, when I came back later and booted the VM the system came up and I could not login, not as a local user or an AD user, additionally console login did not even ask for a password after entering a username. logging in as root in single user mode, I accessed auth.log and the output I read was
kdm: :0: (pam_unix) auth could not identify password for <username>
login: PAM unable to dlopen(/lib/security/pam_winbind.so)
login: PAM [dlerror: /lib/security/pam_winbind.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
login: PAM adding faulty module: /lib/security/pam_winbind.so
login: (pam_unix) auth could not identify password for <username>
I tried commenting out the references to pam_winbind.so in the config files, and rebooted back to normal mode but no change the same log and I can't login.
any ideas on how to unfubar the system?
