clock skew causes winbind auth failure without coherent error report
Last modified: 2016-07-19 13:45:17 EDT
When the clock is wrong, users authenticating with winbind cannot log in.
Winbind emits log messages *noting* that the clock is wrong and that the clock is being adjusted to cope... and then fails to accept the Kerberos TGT which it successfully obtains from the server, complaining that it is not yet valid.
This is a severe usability problem.
Fedora 22 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2016-07-19. Fedora 22 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
