Sol8/pam_krb5/OpenSSH 3.0.2

with the following pam.conf entries, after being prompted for a login 
password the connection is closed:

other   auth sufficient /usr/lib/security/$ISA/
other   auth required /usr/lib/security/$ISA/ try_first_pass

the system logs the error:

sshd[4215]: fatal: input_userauth_info_response_pam: no authentication 

if the pam.conf entry is changed to the following less than desirable entry:

other   auth sufficient /usr/lib/security/$ISA/
other   auth sufficient /usr/lib/security/$ISA/ try_first_pass

and 'UseLogin' is set to 'yes' then a user can login however scp fails. if 
the above pam.conf entry is used and 'UseLogin' is set to 'no' then both ssh 
and scp fail.

regardless of the pam.conf configuration, if 'UseLogin' is set to 'no' and 
the user is being authenticated by either pam_unix or pam_krb5 then password 
expiration (forced change) is ignored.

any help would be appreciated.
