Spaces in AD Group Name Used for Auth in pam.d

22 August 2012

When locking down active directory authentication to only certain AD groups in Linux, it may be necessary to support a group name with spaces in it. Single and double quotes don’t work. Backslashes don’t work. For whatever reason, PAM chose to use [square brackets]. For example:

auth requisite user ingroup [Group Name With Spaces]
