[Gluster-users] Problem with EPEL6 samba-winbind-modules-4.1.9-2.el6.x86_64.rpm

I cannot login as a domain user after installing the samba packages
with the gluster vfs module.

My system:
CentOS 6.5 64-bit

>From /var/log/secure:
Jul 19 08:52:00 nostromo sshd[1955]: PAM unable to
/lib64/security/pam_winbind.so: cannot open shared object file: No
such file or directory
Jul 19 08:52:00 nostromo sshd[1955]: PAM adding faulty module:
Jul 19 08:52:04 nostromo sshd[1956]: fatal: Access denied for user
mike by PAM account configuration

It appears that samba-winbind-modules-4.1.9-2.el6.x86_64.rpm installs
pam_winbind.so to:
instead of:
Which is where all the other pam modules are.

My workaround:
I worked around this problem by simply logging in as root (a local
user) and creating a symlink:
ln -s /usr/lib64/security/pam_winbind.so /usr/lib64/pam_winbind.so

However, as a caution to others: That symlink might need to be deleted
before you update to a new RPM with the fix
