Description John T. Rose 2007-04-13 18:50:42 UTC
Description of problem:
acl_file, dict_file, and admin_keytab are defined in the kdcdefaults stanza. It
seems they should be defined in the realms stanza to work properly. For example,
in the default configuration the dictionary won't be found or used.

You're right. I have no idea why those are set there.

Comment 2 RHEL Program Management 2007-04-13 19:24:11 UTC
This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for inclusion in a Red
Hat Enterprise Linux maintenance release.  Product Management has requested
further review of this request by Red Hat Engineering, for potential
inclusion in a Red Hat Enterprise Linux Update release for currently deployed
products.  This request is not yet committed for inclusion in an Update

Comment 4 Kostas Georgiou 2007-06-02 17:20:02 UTC
Note that in fc6 the selinux policy prevents the kadmin server to access the
dict file in /usr. My production kerberos servers are in rhel4 and it works
there but none of my kerberos servers have rhel5 yet so I cannot test there.
Just a heads up in case it does cause problems.

Comment 5 Nalin Dahyabhai 2007-06-25 06:13:15 UTC
CCing Dan so that he can track the policy change, moving to MODIFIED.
