wishlist: authconfig support for pam_mount
Last modified: 2018-03-22 16:33:08 EDT
Right now authconfig supports configuring the system to authenticate against a
Windows/Samba domain, which means that this can be configured during installation.
Anyone authenticating against a Windows/Samba domain almost certainly wants to
have their users' server share mounted automatically on log-in. It would be
great if authconfig could be used to configure pam_mount to do this when
configuring domain authentication, such that both pam_mount and domain
authentication can be configured during installation.
Can this feature to be implemented?
This is a duplicate of bug 114971
given that pam config files should not be mannually edited because they get overridden by authconfig it would be nice if this bug would be resolved after so many years.
Otherwise you could also drop pam_mount from the distribution as the lack of support with authconfig makes it unuable for your customers.
There is a mechanism by which you can symlink your local pam configuration to the system-auth and password-auth files and override the authconfig so it will not overwrite your local changes. See the system-auth-ac manual page.
