I am thinking of running several data downloads to AFS (scheduled from
cron) and using the same keytab for all jobs. The jobs can be
scheduled at the same time (on the same server).

Will there be a window when 2nd download job (while authenticating)
renders 1st download job (already in progress) without access?

Or do I need a different key file (+ kerberos principal) for each
download job?
