       pam_winbind - PAM module for Winbind

       This tool is part of the samba(7) suite.

       pam_winbind  is	a  PAM	module that can authenticate users against the
       local domain by talking to the Winbind daemon.

       pam_winbind supports several options:

       debug  Gives debugging output to syslog.

       require_membership_of=[SID or NAME]
	      If this option is set, pam_winbind will only succeed if the user
	      is  a  member  of	 the  given SID or NAME. A SID can be either a
	      group-SID, a alias-SID or even a user-SID. It is	also  possible
	      to give a NAME instead of the SID. That name must have the form:
	      MYDOMAIN\mygroup orMYDOMAIN\myuser. pam_winbind  will,  in  that
	      case,  lookup the SID internally. Note that NAME may not contain
	      any spaces. It is thus recommended to only  use  SIDs.  You  can
	      verify  the  list	 of  SIDs  a  user  is a member of with wbinfo


	      By default, pam_winbind tries to get  the	 authentication	 token
	      from  a  previous	 module.  If no token is available it asks the
	      user for the old password. With this option, pam_winbind	aborts
	      with  an error if no authentication token from a previous module
	      is available.

	      Set the new password to  the  one	 provided  by  the  previously
	      stacked  password	 module. If this option is not set pam_winbind
	      will ask the user for the new password.

       wbinfo(1), winbindd(8)

       This man page is correct for version 3.0 of Samba.

       The original Samba software  and	 related  utilities  were  created  by
       Andrew  Tridgell.  Samba	 is now developed by the Samba Team as an Open
       Source project similar to the way the Linux kernel is developed.

       This manpage was written by Jelmer Vernooij and Guenther Deschner.
