Description Kyle Powell 2008-09-17 18:47:08 EDT
Description of problem:

krb5-server package does not contain a /etc/logrotate.d/krb5kdc file to instruct logrotate to rotate /var/log/krb5kdc.log. Consequently, the kerberos server log never gets rotated, it simply keeps growing.

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

Additional info:

Proposed /etc/logrotate.d/krb5kdc:

/var/log/krb5kdc.log {
    rotate 12
        /sbin/service krb5kdc reload 2> /dev/null > /dev/null || true
