Description Enrico Scholz 2007-05-06 08:41:00 EDT
Description of problem:

There is an hardcoded server principal of 'host/%s' in
ClientSession::_serverPrincipal() in

This is bad because 'host/*' principals are for system services only and the
keytab can/must not be read by non-root users. As koji services (hub) are run by
the 'httpd' user, this will not work.

There should be used (customizable) principal names like HTTP/* instead of.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Comment 1 Jesse Keating 2007-06-12 15:54:34 EDT
Filed upstream as https://hosted.fedoraproject.org/projects/koji/ticket/32 
Waiting for an upstream fix to release.
Comment 2 Jesse Keating 2007-11-15 11:46:17 EST
Closing this as upstream here to.  Really needs to be fixed upstream and it will
filter down to the Fedora release.
