Hi, thanks for the reply

However I pretty much just took the file from the docs 

[root at capstan root]# more  /etc/pam.d/cvs

auth    sufficient      /lib/security/pam_winbind.so
auth    required        /lib/security/pam_unix.so
account sufficient      /lib/security/pam_winbind.so
account required        /lib/security/pam_unix.so

Further info, do I need to me able to chmod windomain+user as an
indication of a working system ?

You might need to set up a PAM authentication file for CVSNT.  It 
understands PAM, and the default PAM config changed in the RH9 
timeframe--but you might have a locked down default PAM config.  There's

a sample on the InstallationLinux page in the wiki.


Not sure that's what is happening, but might help.
