Description Jan Pazdziora 2013-06-05 11:10:15 EDT
Description of problem:

I did run command

ipa-getkeytab -s server.example.com -p HTTP/broker.example.net -k /var/www/openshift/broker/httpd/conf.d/http.keytab

under es_ES.utf8 locales (export LC_ALL=es_ES.utf8; export LANG=es_ES.utf8) and it ended with

Failed to add key to the keytab

I would expect localized message.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set Spanish locales.
2. Have server and principal and try to run ipa-getkeytab with -k parameter pointing to nonexistent directory.

Actual results:

Failed to add key to the keytab

Expected results:

No se pudo agregar clave de la tabla de claves

Additional info:

I believe that no localization works for IPA CLI tools because the .mo file is ipa.mo (for example /usr/share/locale/es/LC_MESSAGES/ipa.mo) while the bindtextdomain(PACKAGE, LOCALEDIR); is called with PACKAGE set to ipa-client or ipa-server.

When I do

cd /usr/share/locale/es/LC_MESSAGES ; ln -s ipa.mo ipa-client.mo

the command ipa-getkeytab reports Spanish message.
Comment 2 Jan Pazdziora 2013-06-05 11:12:36 EDT
Of course, completeness of the localization is another issue

$ git grep 'Failed to add key to the keytab'
install/po/es.po:msgid "Failed to add key to the keytab\n"
install/po/fr.po:msgid "Failed to add key to the keytab\n"
install/po/ipa.pot:msgid "Failed to add key to the keytab\n"
install/po/pl.po:msgid "Failed to add key to the keytab\n"
install/po/uk.po:msgid "Failed to add key to the keytab\n"
ipa-client/ipa-getkeytab.c:                                _("Failed to add key to the keytab\n"));

but getting what we have to actually work (it seems like a packaging error) would be a good start. And testing it.

Comment 7 Namita Soman 2015-01-26 12:25:06 EST
Verified above scenario using ipa-server-4.1.0-16.el7.x86_64

# export LC_ALL=es_ES.utf8

# export LANG=es_ES.utf8

# ipa-getkeytab -s `hostname` -p HTTP/cloud-qe-3.testrelm.test -k /tmp/nk.keytab 
Tabla de claves recuperada y almacenada correctamente en:/tmp/nk.keytab

# ls -l /tmp/nk.keytab
-rw-------. 1 root root 354 ene 26 12:05 /tmp/nk.keytab

[google translate indicated the message above as - Key table correctly retrieved and stored : /tmp/nk.keytab]
Comment 8 Namita Soman 2015-01-26 12:31:37 EST
and when pointing to a non-existent dir:
# ipa-getkeytab -s `hostname` -p HTTP/cloud-qe-3.testrelm.test -k /aaa/nk.keytab 
No se pudo agregar clave de la tabla de claves

[translates to - Failed to add key key table]
