I'm trying to track down a kerberos weirdness and would appreciate some
I'm using a krb5.conf from my production RHEL5 machines in f11 which is
set to lookup the KDC's using DNS for the EOS.NCSU.EDU realm. A kinit
-5 <username> returns the following:
kinit(v5): Cannot resolve network address for KDS in realm EOS.NCSU.EDU
while getting initial credentials
If I turn on the nscd daemon the above kinit command works as expected
and I have tickets. Turn nscd off, and the above error returns.
I've strace'd kinit and I see it pulling down the KDC DNS names but I
can't figure out what is happening to produce the error. Thoughts?
