cannot setup kerberos auth with gui
Last modified: 2010-06-30 03:16:35 EDT
Description of problem:
I couldn't turn on kerberos authentication with authconfig-gtk... it's completely grayed out. I had to use authconfig-tui, which did work.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
all the time
Steps to Reproduce:
1. run authconfig-gtk
2. try to setup kerberos authentication
3. the input fields are all greyed out.
3. setup kerberos authentication.
Do you have pam_krb5 package installed?
Authconfig GUI requires it for kerberos auth because some configurations are not supported with SSSD.
Yes, pam_krb5 is installed.
This was a new "Graphical Desktop" F13 install. I first noticed the problem in "first boot" where authconfig-gtk is exec'd, I couldn't configure kerberos auth.
I see if I choose another "User Account Database" other than "Local accounts only" then Kerberos lights up as a choice (I don't see SSSD listed anywhere so I'm not sure how that fits in). For some reason, the kerberos auth method is unavailable with "Local accounts only", which is what I was trying to do.
Ah so. This is on purpose - the GUI allows setting up only the most usual use-cases. Local user identity with krb5 auth is not amongst them.
