Post Unable to install/configure PAM authentication on Linux Reply with quote
Hi,
We are trying to established server/client setup for 24x7 scheduler and trying to access the agent however it's giving following errors.

"Connection to remote host "mynewhost" failed"

Looking at documentation we tried following:

1. Download the Perl Authen::PAM module (Authen-PAM-0.12.tar.gz)
It is available at http://www.perl.com/CPAN/authors/id/N/NI/NIKIP/
2. cd /tmp
tar -zxvf Authen-PAM-0.15.tar.gz
cd Authen-PAM-0.15
perl Makefile.PL
make
make install


However this is failing with following errors:

[root@nyaddbatest01 Authen-PAM-0.16]# perl Makefile.PL
Checking if your kit is complete...
Looks good
checking for gcc... gcc
checking for C compiler default output file name... a.out
checking whether the C compiler works... yes
checking whether we are cross compiling... no
checking for suffix of executables...

checking whether we are using the GNU C compiler... yes
checking whether gcc accepts -g... yes
checking for gcc option to accept ANSI C... none needed
checking how to run the C preprocessor... gcc -E
checking for pam header files in... no
configure: error: cannot find the pam_appl.h file
Error in configuring the Authen::PAM module.


If we comment out everything from auth.pl and keep the following line, it successfully connect to the agent host.
print "OK";

So the problem appears to be PAM authentication setup related.
we have copied the files to pam.d directory too but it's not working for us.
---------------------------
- Add 'jscheduler' service configuration to system PAM files directory or
configuration file.
Here is an example for RedHat Linux:
cp <path>/pam/jscheduler /etc/pam.d/
----------------------------------

when I run auth.pl, i get following error.

/u01/app/247scheduler/auth.pl oracle asdasdas
Module is unknown

This is the exact error in debug.log file too.

----------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------

Any help in this regard is highly appreciated as we have a working demo planned for Wednesday.

Please have a look at http://stackoverflow.com/questions/15614823/pam-appl-h-and-pam-misc-h-missing-in-rshd-c-source-code

They say CentOS needs pam-devel rpm installed for that to work. Specific information is available at the end of the referenced article.

Hope that helps.

Hi,
We have Red hat linux. Does this apply to our version too instead of CentOS?

It looks like you have successfully installed PAM and Authen-PAM module.

To test that all dependencies are in place, please run ./auth.pl test test command. What kind of output do you get?

HI,
I have tried that too and it is giving same error.

[oracle@:TESTDB] auth.pl oracle asdasdasd
Module is unknown


I noticed one thing with the configuration. there was requirement to copy the jscheduler file to /etc/pam.d/ directory.
We have copied that file however int he file, there are libraries mentioned which does not exist on os level.

FYI what I mean.

[oracle@jscheduler:TESTDB] cd /etc/pam.d/
[oracle@jscheduler:TESTDB] more jscheduler
#%PAM-1.0
auth required /lib/security/pam_pwdb.so shadow nullok
account required /lib/security/pam_pwdb.so
session required /lib/security/pam_pwdb.so

[oracle@:TESTDB] ls -ltr /lib/security/pam_pwdb.so
ls: cannot access /lib/security/pam_pwdb.so: No such file or directory


You can see that these files not present on host. May be this is the reason for the above errors.

I think you're correct. Do you have pam_unix.so?

Yes we do have pam_unix.so.

I have updated the jscheduler file and added this new entry and it worked.

[root@pam.d]# cat jscheduler
#%PAM-1.0
auth required pam_unix.so shadow nullok
account required pam_unix.so
session required pam_unix.so


./auth.pl oracle **********
OK


FYI debug.log too.

Thank you very much for quick fix.

Thank you for the status update. Please note this change is specific to your system type. Different PAM libraries are used by different *nix systems.
