Kerberos - Kadmin issue NTP

by Alpha01

I stumbled onto yet another Kerberos problem.


[root@afs2 log]# kadmin -p kerberosadmin/[email protected]
Authenticating as principal kerberosadmin/[email protected] with password.
Password for kerberosadmin/[email protected]: 
kadmin: GSS-API (or Kerberos) error while initializing kadmin interface


Make sure the time is correct on your Kerberos client/server, ideally NTP should be enabled on the hosts to avoid things like these from happening. Until I rollout ntp on my local LAN, I just manually ran ntpdate
