Thanks Dimitri, I was clarified about the setup yesterday. Looks like, I do not need Kerberos implemented for PAM Pass-through.
Since IPA is to be a domain controller, is it necessary to implement Kerberos for server and clients? Since, I only need Unix hosts to talk to the DC? I mean can I separate the Kerb part from the IPA and just use it for password change on both sides? >>> >>> >> > Prashanth, > > The setup is a bit confusing. > IPA v1 that is currently available can serve users and groups to > UNIX/Linux clients via nss_ldap. > One can also configure pam_ldap or pam_rkb5 to authenticate against IPA v1. > IPA v1 does not handle netgroups or hosts.
