I've been trying all day to get pam_ldap to authenticate an ssh session
against Active Directory.  I thought that I had found the perfect HOWTO
(read: one that didn't require nss_ldap), but its instructions didn't seem
to get it working on my system.

I've read that can authenticate to AD with pam_ldap alone, and I've read
that you can't, as well.  Does anyone have any experience doing this w/o
nss_ldap.  I'm running 4.10, and I don't think it has support for

If anyone has any advice, I'd love to hear it.


PS - The instructions I followed are here:
