Your choice...

keytab ------> credential cache  -------> token

Depending on the value of KRB5CCNAME you can choose different cache
files and depending on the chosen pag the kernel will choose different
token locations for you.

If you use Heimdals "kinit ..... command" it will do everything for you.
>From the man page:

     If  a command is given, kinit will set up new credentials caches, and AFS
     PAG, and then run the given command.  When it finishes the credentials
     will be removed.
