Rep: Reputation: 15 fails to retreive ticket

Currently I am setting up a group of Linux machines, and I have successfully configured Samba and PAM to authenticate users that login to Linux against the Windows Active Directory of users. Furthermore, Kerberos works to the extent that I can kinit, successfully retrieve a ticket, and smbmount with it. I discovered that typing in the password twice (once for login, another to kinit) became tedious after constant use. However, I just recently discovered that there was a module named that supposedly could retrieve a ticket on login. No matter how I tried configuring it, it would not work properly.

The following is /etc/pam.d/login (sans header):
auth        required      /lib/security/
auth        sufficient    /lib/security/
auth        sufficient    /lib/security/ likeauth nullok use_first_pass
auth        required      /lib/security/
auth	    required      /lib/security/ use_first_pass creds

account     sufficient    /lib/security/
account     required      /lib/security/

password    required      /lib/security/ retry=3
password    sufficient    /lib/security/ nullok use_authtok md5 shadow
password    required      /lib/security/

session     required      /lib/security/ skel=/etc/skel/ umask=0077
session     required      /lib/security/
session     required      /lib/security/
I'm not positive if this is relevant to this module, but when a user logs in, the username format is in DOMAIN+username. However, for kinit to work, the username must be username@DOMAIN.TLD. Would I need additional tweaking to get to work?

For those that have experience with this module, am I correct in assuming that it does in fact retrieve a ticket on login? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
