Description Dmitri Pal 2010-05-12 21:30:55 UTC
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #591681 +++

Description of problem:

After selecting FreeIPA as authentication server in authconfig and marking checkbox 'Use DNS to locate KDC for realms' it would be good that the fields KDCs and 'Admin servers' are grayed out?

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Just configure FreeIPA authentication with DNS used to locate KDCs.

Additional info:
In /etc/krb5.conf DNS resolution is selected and in the sam time values of KDC and admin server are filled with exact values. The question is which values have higher priority?

According to the krb5.conf manpage the DNS is used only when the realm and KDC is not filled in. I am not sure whether sssd behaves the same.

Jakub, can you clarify? I think our default behavior is the same, but you're the authority.
