Re: Re: Question regarding pam.conf
My requirements is when i do su -, only then group is checked.
Otherwise (i.e. su - user, where user is not part of group wheel), su - user should not be checked that rule and next module in stack is checked.
I know if it can be done using pam_group module.

'root_only' means that only root is able to use su. If you want root to be able
to use su without supplying the password, you should also specify 'su auth
sufficient pam_rootok.so' line in front of pam_group.so line.
