pam_ldap Changes

The Solaris 10 OS release introduced several changes to pam_ldap, identified in the following list. See the pam_ldap(5) man page for more information.

It is not possible to provide a clean automated update for the changes listed above. Therefore, an upgrade to a Solaris 10 or later release will not automatically update the existing pam.conf file to reflect the pam_ldap changes. If the existing pam.conf file contains a pam_ldap configuration, you will be notified after the upgrade via the CLEANUP file. You will need to examine the pam.conf file and modify it, as needed.

See pam_passwd_auth(5), pam_authtok_get(5), pam_authtok_store(5), and pam.conf(4) man pages for more information.
