+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #737123 +++
Description of problem:
Matahari will use kerberos for auth from broker to broker as well as agent to broker, and to do this we need a way to programatically renew tickets otherwise kerberos usage is not useful
kstart provides a way to do this, but the package is not in RHEL
This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for
inclusion in the current release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
Because the affected component is not scheduled to be updated in the
current release, Red Hat is unfortunately unable to address this
request at this time. Red Hat invites you to ask your support
representative to propose this request, if appropriate and relevant,
in the next release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
Talked with Dmitri about this and consensus was that we will not pull this package into RHEL at this time. We will document how to set up cron as a workarond for renewing kerberos tickets, and eventually if GSSAPI changes can be made to support ticket renewals we will use that
Or will deliver interim code to do it in Matahari. Not going to package it.
