How to make a unified login? (PAM, LDAP, /etc/shadow, Samba, etc)
Sitrep, long story short.
Running this software:
Linux 2.6 on a hacked LaCie NetworkSpace
installed SSHd 5.4
installed Samba 3.4
installed lighttpd 1.4
installed ProFTPD 1.3
Login with my account and same password on all of those. When i use passwd, the change should be reflected on all of them.
Samba uses encrypted passwords, and i must change passwords for samba with smbpasswd.
lighttpd uses separate password file, must change by hand.
ProFTPD and SSH use system login (/etc/shadow).
So far i found two possible solutions, but can't tell if i understood them right or how to achieve them:
Please share your thoughts and experience with this issue, i'll be much obliged four your comment and preferably howto links, thanks!
An ldap server can do this, once pam is configured to use ldap it will be available to any application that uses pam. The next step would be to check whether the other applications support pam or not.
