pam_ldap Changes

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

An upgrade to this release will not automatically update the existing pam.conf file to reflect the above changes. If the existing pam.conf file contains a pam_ldap configuration, you will be notified after the upgrade by the CLEANUP file. You will need to examine the pam.conf file and modify it, as needed.

It is not possible to provide a clean automatic update for the changes listed above, primarily password prompting and password update, due to the relevance of other modules used in the same stack and also due to the existence of third party modules.

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