PAM service record

The ndm.pam record identifies the PAM service configuration file used to authenticate the user authority for IBM® Connect:Direct® Processes. If the service initialization parameter is defined and if PAM is installed on the IBM Connect:Direct server, PAM is used to authenticate users for service-providing application.

The service name required is typically defined in the /etc/pam.conf file for AIX, Solaris and HP operating systems, or defined and named by a file in the /etc/pam.d directory for Linux operating systems. Your system might also have a man page for PAM that provides further details.
