Description Jakub Hrozek 2010-06-11 07:58:02 EDT
Description of problem:
The Kerberos provider contains an option krb5_changepw_principal. Probably no password-changing services that use the kpasswd protocol and relatives use a principal name other than "kadmin/changepw@REALM". 

For 1.2 we should just remove the option from the configAPI and manpages and remove it altogether from a later version.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. man sssd-krb5
2. grep krb5_changepw_principal /etc/sssd/sssd.api.d/sssd-ipa.conf /etc/sssd/sssd.api.d/sssd-krb5.conf
Actual results:
no krb5_changepw_principal

Expected results:
krb5_changepw_principal is in both manpage and config API
