[ubuntu] 12.04 TLS: MariaDB, PAM, and Centrify

view story

http://ubuntuforums.org – I'm trying to make MariaDB, PAM, and Centrify work together on Ubuntu 12.04, and so far I haven't had any luck. Centrify is working, and I am using it successfully for SSH and sudo. My goal is to use Active Directory for MySQL\MariaDB authentication. I noticed that the MySQL PAM modules are commercial, and since I'd like to avoid spending cash on software, MariaDB seems like the logical choice. Having installed the LAMP option when building the system, I removed MySQL, installed MariaDB, and enabled the PAM module for it. I followed the instructions at https://kb.askmonty.org/en/pam-authent (Hardware)
