Description Jan Hutař 2007-05-28 10:11:00 EDT
Description of problem:
While testing 2007:0384 I tried to set-up krb5 server on RHEL-2.1@ia64 and 
found, that kadmin core-dumps when I try to use it

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. set up krb5 server (/etc/krb5.conf attached)
2. # kadmin -w PASSWORD -q "listprincs"

Actual results:
kadmin core-dumps and user sees:

Authenticating as principal root/admin@EXAMPLE.COM with password.
kadmin: Communication failure with server while initializing kadmin interface

Expected results:
kadmin lists princs

Additional info:
Maybe this is just a miss-configuration (see attached /etc/krb5.conf), but I 
wasn't able to get krb5 working in some other way.
I tested on i386 and it seems it doesn't have such a problem.

kadmin coredump

kadmin coredump generated using:

  1. ensure kadmin is killed
  2. # ulimit -c unlimited
  3. # /usr/kerberos/sbin/kadmind -nofork
  4. on other terminal:
     # kadmin -w PASSWORD -q "listprincs"
Comment 3 Jan Hutař 2007-05-28 10:23:14 EDT
Unussual part from /etc/krb5.conf:
  kdc =
  admin_server =

Backtrace is doesn't seem too helpful:
#0  0x20000000003ccbf1 in strlen () from /lib/libc.so.6.1
