I am trying to install SuSE 9.1 as a workstation in a NT 4 Domain network.
The default suse 9.1 install installed winbind etc, and configured them allowing me
to log on to ssh with a NT username and password.
I now want to configure pam_mount to mount a subdirectory of the unix home directory
as the NT home directory.
I had configured this on an old SuSE 8.1 box, so I think /etc/pam_mount.conf should be OK.
However, having added auth and session lines for pam_mount into /etc/pam.d/sshd
I can only get to the stage that in /var/log/messages I see
pam_mount: error trying to retrieve authtok from auth code
How do I enable pam_mount?
My /etc/pam.d/sshd file is as follows
auth required pam_unix2.so set_secrpc
auth required pam_nologin.so
auth required pam_env.so
auth optional pam_mount.so use_first_pass
account required pam_unix2.so
account required pam_nologin.so
password required pam_pwcheck.so
password required pam_unix2.so use_first_pass use_authtok
session required pam_unix2.so # trace or debug
session required pam_limits.so
session optional pam_mount.so use_first_pass
# Enable the following line to get resmgr support for
# ssh sessions (see /usr/share/doc/packages/resmgr/README.SuSE)
#session optional pam_resmgr.so fake_ttyname

This is my annual request for help. I'm carrying out our regular server
upgrades (Suse 8.2 to 9.1). I've done a fresh install and obviously some
aspect of the default install has changed. This happens every year.
1) I can't connect using putty other than be enabling ssh1. ie the default
ssh connection does not work on 9.1 when it did on 8.2. Any ideas?
2) Using the same smb.conf file on 9.1 does not work in the same way. We
authenticate users on our other servers by setting security = user on our
main server and then security = server on the other servers. Samba 3 does
not seem to like this. Any ideas?
Does anyone know where SuSE have put the default preferences for Icewm. No
matter where I change the preferences it makes no effect on the desktop - in
particular changing the background image?
Poking about on the suse ftp site I spotted their email server
directories and within that was a .pdf manual about running their email
server which looked very useful.
Is the email server on this product basically cyrus IMAP? If so, how
much is the manual a manual for cyrus that could be used as it looked a
lot better than the various howtos I've seen about (which basically I
can't understand enough to do something useful with. But then perhaps
I'm just being thick)?
As the needs aren't great, have the put the older versions of their
emailserver on the ftp site complete so they can be downloaded? I
couldn't make out if the earlier version directories were functional or
just a collection of patches.
For future developments, where you are up against MS Exchange/Outlook, there are two cards to bring into play. It is a fact that the majority of viruses currently in the wild affect MS Outlook, and that this likely to continue to be true. Second, if they want an integrated personal organiser/messaging solution, then the schools version of SLOX is a very high value product that provides that in a shiny and supported package.
I know it's not (yet) open source, but it's a step in the right direction, and I don't think there is anything open source that can provide this functionality in a way that education management can be sold it.

Not had much experience setting this sort of thing up but, from a users
point of view I *personally* think Horde is the best web email
application I have come across.
Exchange has all the calendar integration etc. all in but the security
risks alone make it make it a no go for me, and OWA is very poor.

I am trying to configure an email server in our network to handle internal
mail and i am having trouble finding documentation on how to do it. I have
sendmail installed. Does anyone know where to find the docs or has anyone
experience with this. There is nothing in the Suse admin guide - presume they
want to sell me the software to do it?
HI Chris and Thomas:
I had to go out so abandoned the project for a while.
According to the suse hardware tool the drive is HPFS/NTFS and mounted as:
With Knoppix I could write a test.txt file to it and create a directory easily
enough, although it wouldn't allow me to copy directories, now back in SuSE I
can't write to it or remove the directory. I can see it though.
With the mount comand Thomas:
krell4:~ # mount -o gid=$GID,uid=$UID,defaults /dev/sdb1 /media/sdb1
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sdb1,
or too many mounted file systems
The problem is that there is already some windows rap (with a silent c) on the
drive from school that I can't get rid of as they need ti. If I could format
it I would be fine.
Perhaps I should quite and look for another option for the soon to be lost

What filesystem is it using. What's the output from "ls -l /dev/foo",
where "/dev/foo" is the partition you're mounting....

Has anyone had any success with external hard drives? I have a Maxtor USB
drive I borrowed from school so that I can re-arrange my hard drive on my
computer. SuSE finds it no problem but as soon as I try to use it I am told
that I can enter the folder. I can read it in Knoppix fine but not write to
it and of course wit works fine in Doze.
Any suggestions as to what I need to do or what I should be looking at?
