Description Emilio Gargiulo 2007-04-24 07:18:27 UTC
I compile samba on tru64 Unix v5.1b.
All seems work fine, but swat does not authenticate.

This in log.swat:

[2007/04/24 13:50:26, 4] auth/pass_check.c:(631)
  pass_check: Checking password for user root (l=9)
[2007/04/24 13:50:26, 5] auth/pass_check.c:(692)
  Checking password for user root in OSF1_ENH_SEC
[2007/04/24 13:50:26, 2] auth/pass_check.c:(724)
  Disallowing root with null password

In seems that tru64 with basic security (password in /etc/passwd) does not work.
Comment 1 Emilio Gargiulo 2007-04-24 08:50:05 UTC
I find a workaround:
I converted the OS security from  BASE to ENHANCED with the command:
/usr/sbin/convuser -a
and swat will work fine.
But if i return to BASE security model swat still don't work.
Comment 2 Emilio Gargiulo 2007-04-24 09:01:52 UTC
Also, if i change the root password from shell with passwd, then swat does not authenticate too, even if i stay in ENHANCED mode.
So the workaround is not so good.

swat is removed with 4.1
