Can you do the same kvno listing for /var/kerberos/krb5kdc/kpasswd.keytab

Comment 6 Simo Sorce 2008-04-29 10:56:23 EDT
I think EXAMPLE.COM might be a bad REALM name to use, can you post your
/etc/krb5.conf file?
Most probably there are the default EXAMPLE.COM entries and not the right ones.

Comment 7 Rob Crittenden 2008-04-29 11:48:49 EDT
Can you create the directory /var/cache/ipa/kpasswd on the IPA server machine
and try again?
Comment 8 Thorsten Scherf 2008-04-29 12:47:51 EDT
creating the directory doesn't have any effect on the password change.
Comment 9 Bug Zapper 2008-05-14 06:19:34 EDT
Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA.

Comment 10 Rob Crittenden 2008-05-14 11:48:04 EDT
Can you try updating to ipa-1.0.0-5.fc9? It should resolve this issue.
Comment 11 Thorsten Scherf 2008-05-14 15:03:56 EDT
will test this tomorrow and let you know
Comment 12 Rob Crittenden 2008-06-03 15:50:10 EDT
Is this working now?
Comment 13 David Nalley 2008-09-20 15:39:48 EDT
Since there are insufficient details provided in this report for us to investigate the issue further, and we have not received feedback to the information we have requested above, we will assume the problem was not reproducible, or has been fixed in one of the updates we have released for the reporter's distribution.

Users who have experienced this problem are encouraged to upgrade to the latest update of their distribution, and if this issue turns out to still be reproducible in the latest update, please reopen this bug with additional information.

There was actually a bug we fixed in a following release, so I'll re-close this as fixed
