No, I don't think so.

Yes, it should work.

HACMP? Really?

This is most probably a pam problem, but most probably a not very
obvious one. Since your ssh connection works, could you try
replicating the pam configuration for ssh to hbmgmtd. Just the
part which makes sense, of course (auth and account).

Otherwise, you could try debuging pam. I suppose that there's a
way to do that on SLES9.

Interestingly, on my opensuse 10.2 pam_unix.so works fine.
