Cool thanks! So this is ultimately more of client problem? Since the
client should automatically select different authentication methods
based on what the server says.
Unfortunately getpwnam()/getspnam() don't return anything on my system
since I'm using LDAP and I haven't given root the ability to retrieve
password information. So PAM really is the only way to get that
Thank for all the help!
