_Summary_

kernel 2.6.32.46-0.3 (SLES 11 SP1)
pam-config-0.68-1.22
pam-doc-1.0.4-0.7.1
pam-modules-32bit-11-1.18.1
pam-1.0.4-0.7.1
pam-32bit-1.0.4-0.7.1
pam-modules-11-1.18.1
pam_mount-32bit-0.47-13.13.65
pam_mount-0.47-13.13.65
yast2-pam-2.17.2-0.1.79

I'm relatively new to SLES, and I've really struggled to get my head
around PAM configuration. Mostly there now, but the biggest hurdle by
far was getting SHA256 hashes on my shadow passwords.

The updated documentation for PAM_UNIX2 points me in the right
direction, but it's not at all clear. Hopefully this will help any
other newcomers with the same issue.

Start with a default config:

*pam-config -c*
then update /etc/default/passwd and change as follows:

CRYPT=SHA256
CRYPT_FILES=SHA256
