Description Ian Mortimer 2012-05-07 20:51:45 EDT
Description of problem:

Firstboot authentication screen doesn't allow configuring kerberos authentication unless ldap or nis is also selected for account details.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
17.2-1.fc17

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install F17 beta
2. Reboot after install
3. Move through firstboot menus to account settings
  
Actual results:
Network authentication options are grayed out unless ldap or nis is selected for account details.

Expected results:
Kerberos authentication with local account details is a valid and useful configuration.


Additional info:
kerberos authentication with local account details can be configured via kickstart or after boot from the command line with authconfig and works fine in F17 beta.

You can configure it using the command-line ui. The GUI was simplified to accommodate only the major use-cases.

Yes and from kickstart which is how I do it myself but it's less friendly to first time users than the gui.

I can understand that, however in this case most of the functionality is already there.  In the gui if you select ldap, configure kerberos and then unselect ldap the kerberos settings are grayed out again but kerberos is configured correctly.   The only thing missing is pam configuration.


Thanks
