    The only other discussion on this subject is over 8 years old.

    I have both an [removed] server and a NoMachine Terminal Server running on the same server.

    When I open anĀ  [removed] session, all users, including those authenticated through LDAP, are members of the applicable groups defined in /etc/security/group.conf.

    If I just open an SSH session from the command line, the user also acquires memberships to the applicable groups.

    When I open a NoMachine session, the pam_group module is never applied. Users do not belong to applicable groups in /etc/security/group.conf, but these group memberships are required by some of the software installed on the server.

    Is there a fix for this?


    Never mind. It’s working.

    I’m not sure what changed between login methods, but somehow pam_group was showing enabled. This persisted for the better part of the day. On reboot, I discovered pam-auth-update was reporting pam_group was disabled! I enabled it, and it is working as expected.


    I was just about to answer you when you posted a reply. Anyway, if it can help, we have this article: for trouble-shooting.

    We also generally recommend not to have another NX-derivative on the same server as NoMachine as we cannot guarantee that there won’t be incompatibilities.
