I just want to write some experiences I got last weeks.
First: The PC last mentioned was totaly upset, not AFS fault. Set it up
Now OpenAFS and MIT krb5 3.1 for windows seems to work.
For bad sake, users don=B4t obtain tokens automaticly. I setup krb.ini as
on other PCs, I setup our cgv.tugraz.at cell as default, all I get is a
"access error XXX" while trying to logging in (local users).
After I logged in, sometimes the "get AFS tokens" screen appears,
sometimes not. If not, I need to start Authentication from start menu to
grab a token. I don=B4t know where to step in for better experience on
After I/the users got the token, everything works fine so far, even
Office 2007, no problem.
Once I had the problem with OpenAFS authentication screen didn=B4t
appeared, but I installed some software before and didn=B4t restarted win=
On my vista laptop I=B4m nearly depressed.
I don=B4t activated "get token at login" and the authentication screen
appears every time I login and I=B4m able to grab a token.
But after the sleep mode sometimes OpenAFS break down and won=B4t come
back. Even stopping and starting the openafs service doesn=B4t do
anything. Only reboot resolves that problem.
Maybe the wlan drivers are not well enough (sometimes vista doesn=B4t fin=
the net although just 1m away from router), maybe switching wlans in
sleep mode isn=B4t best for OpenAFS.
On the other side, Debian 1.4.2-6 packages are working fine as server
and client and no problem on that side.
Although with etch the pam configuration is tricky. In a etch-only
enviroment the ticket forwarding works perfectly, but from sarge to
etch, its tricky.
