How to set up pam authentication in ssh for opensuse 12.2
Out of the box openSUSE 12.2 won't use pam for ssh authentication. You'll want to enable pam if you are using Active Directory authentication.
You'll need to make sure that the following two parameters are set as shown below.
UsePAM yes ChallengeResponseAuthentication yes
Next, as root do
# service sshd restart
