KB-2349: How to set up Centrify authentication with MySQL

Authentication Service ,  

12 April,16 at 10:57 AM

Applies to: All versions of Centrify DirectControl.
MySQL can be configured to authenticate using PAM and NSS and since Centrify uses PAM, what steps are needed to integrate both products?
1) Please follow the steps mentioned in the word document attached to the KB. It has been tested on the CentOS platform.
2) /etc/pam.d/mysql is required, which is also available in the attachment. Save the attached mysqld.pam.d as /etc/pam.d/mysqld
Note: MySQL and Persona are not Centrify products, please contact the respective vendors for further support and assistance.
