Description Chris Ricker 2002-07-02 14:25:19 EDT
Chapter 11, "Configuring a Kerberos 5 Client"

step 3 is potentially unclear -- it should be emphasized that the creation of
the client host principal (the "addprinc -randkey host/blah.example.com" step)
must be done on the server.

There's also some poor grammar (such as the "Because you will never need to type
the password for this principal again, and you probably do not want to bother
coming up with a good password.") non-sentence.
