No one has run into this issue yet??

Comment 2 Paul Witting 2004-09-27 22:24:45 UTC
Yes we have. See bug #114938

I've had luck with Kostas Georgiou's Kerberos packages, I'm not sure 
why Redhat is dragging their heels on this. I encourage you to read 
the whole thread to understand what is happening.

You can get the rpms at http://www.hep.ph.ic.ac.uk/~georgiou/krb5

Comment 3 Charles Tran 2004-09-28 14:19:14 UTC
thx for the input.. I have been trying to recompile source rpms from
FC1 to get them working.. but no to no avail...

I will give Kotas' packages a shot.. shame that RedHat is trivializing
this issue.. There will ALWAYS be a need for M$ interoperability.. at
least where I work.. 

thx again..

I am able to join my Windows Server 2003 AD domain from my RHEL3
server using just Red Hat packages:



[Administrator@seitz-rhel3 root]# net ads join
