I'm in the process of setting up a small network using SuSE 8.2 pro - as this
network needs the ability to scale rapidly in the future, and to be as
unobstructive as possible to end users, I decided to build it round a
Kerberos/LDAP authentication system.
Following the instructions in the SuSE 8.2 Admin Guide, I've created a
Kerberos realm named the same as my internal DNS domain, but upper case, and
can obtain tickets from this using kinit on the local machine. However, I
can't obtain a ticket from a remote machine, instead getting the following
Exception: krb_error 38 Incorrect net address (38) Incorrect net address
KrbException: Incorrect net address (38)
Caused by: KrbException: Identifier doesn't match expected value (906)
... 4 more
As far as I can see, everything is set up correctly in the local
/etc/krb.conf. The default_realm is correct, there is a realms entry for it
giving the FQDN of the Kerberos server for kdc, kpasswd_server and
I did attempt to set up Kerberos via DNS but got a message saying it couldn't
identify the kdc, so it's presumably getting further than that now - I'll
have another go at the DNS route once I know the basics are working.
I've searched the web trying to find out what the above error actually means,
and drawn a blank - can anyone enlighten me?
If it's any help I can post details from the actual configuration files - this
is tucked away on a private network, so there's no real risk, and I can
change everything afterwards once I know how to do it.
