pam_auth_basic_user() - account is not healthy

Hi all,

I'm trying to use Apache's pam_auth_module with winbindd to authenticate Intranet users to a web application using our PDC (WinNT - sp6a box).

It seems to work well with samba (users can access their shares using domain credentials), but it doesn't work for apache, and googling has given no answer.

For every auth attempt this is my auth.log:

Nov 14 17:17:50 ict-srv-db pam_winbind[591]: Verify user `foo'
Nov 14 17:17:50 ict-srv-db pam_winbind[591]: user 'foo' granted acces

And this is the error.log of apache:
[Fri Nov 14 17:17:50 2003] [error] (13)Permission denied: access to / failed for 192.168.0.xxx, reason: Permission denied
[Fri Nov 14 17:17:50 2003] [debug] mod_auth_pam.c(398): [client 192.168.0.xxx] pam_auth_basic_user() - account is not healthy

I'm clueless, any hint?
