By remote auth at install time fo you mean set it up and log straight
in as a remote user or just set it up? From experience kerberos
generally likes a reboot before it will work properly because it likes
to have realms and reverse DNS and all that stuff right from boot.
Personally I think in a lot of use cases where they setup remote auth
it would be done as part of a kick start install and not matter so
much so personally I don't see it as a blocker issue.
