Description Dmitri Pal 2013-01-03 15:05:15 UTC
This bug is created as a clone of upstream ticket:

The current value of 15 for krb5_auth_timeout makes failover of krb5_server(krb5_server=SERVER1,SERVER2) quite slow(15seconds) in certain scenarios, e.g.

- if SERVER1 machine is down
- if packets are DROPPED in SERVER1

Setting krb5_auth_timeout=6 in the above cases allows failover to happen in 6 seconds.

Not sure why krb5_auth_timeout is defaulted to 15. I would suggest it to be lowered to 6.

Fixed upstream.

Comment 2 Jakub Hrozek 2013-10-04 13:23:47 UTC
Temporarily moving bugs to MODIFIED to work around errata tool bug

Comment 4 Kaushik Banerjee 2013-11-23 18:03:25 UTC
Verified in version sssd-1.11.2-1.el7

Verified that the value has been updated in manpage to 6 seconds and functionally verified that failover to SERVER2 happens in 6 seconds now.
