Enable linux as a kerberos client
Well, okay, specifically redhat.
By far the easiest way to make a machine a kerberos client, is simply
to add it to the configs at kicktart time. However, if you need to do it
post-install time, it can be considerably more challenging.
I have so far only found partial information with google searches (March
2013). The results claim that to enable a RedHat machine to be a functional
kerberos client, all you have to do is add the 3 following things:
and then you'll be happy.
Nope. This is way under-documented. For our RedHat 6.3 machines, we ALSO
needed to modify the following files:
- krb5-libs package
- krb5-workstation package
- /etc/krb5.conf configuration file
Since these are quick notes, I wont detail the specific changes here,
unfortunately. But at least you now know what is involved.
