original PAM file backed up to /etc/pam.conf.nxdrv.051807161225
Note that it indicates which file(s) were modified, where the original was backed up to before modification, and the exact line that was inserted into the pam.conf.

PAM is fairly new to AIX. In AIX 5.3, you need to modify /etc/security/methods.cfg and add a line to your 'usw' stanza to enable PAM on your system:
auth_type = PAM_AUTH
