I want to have samba use /etc/passwd to authenticate users, I'm
looking through the samba docs to
# password-migration
auth       requisite
# pam_smbpass is called IF pam_unix succeeds.
auth       requisite
auth       optional migrate
account    required
password   requisite retry=3
password   requisite shadow md5 use_authtok try_first_pass
password   optional nullok use_authtok try_first_pass
session    required
