Description Stef Walter 2012-11-13 13:27:18 UTC
The kerberos clock skew fixes are going to be in MIT krb5 1.11. However that release was not ready for Fedora 18. So we could run ntpdate as a temporary work around.

This is especially relevant for kickstart, as systems can come up with an invalid clock.

Comment 1 Stef Walter 2013-03-05 10:20:19 UTC
No longer relevant. Anaconda kickstart is being delivered in Fedora 19 which will contain the krb5 1.11 and the clock skew fixes.
