[OpenAFS] Problem with klog
Fri, 29 May 2009 12:06:38 +0100
I have been trying to set up a test AFS cell on Fedora 10. I have been following
a web page "Creating a New Cell on Fedora", that was at www.dementia.org a few
weeks ago, but now seems to have disappeared. Fortunately, I have a paper copy
I have set up an AFS cell, a partition a volume and a user and an acl.
On the server machine, I can authenticate as the user with kadmin and aklog,
and then I have read/write access to the user's /afs home directory. All
good so far.
However, I can't authenticate with klog, on the AFS server, or on client
If I run "klog <username>", I get the error message
"Unable to authenticate to AFS because Authentication Server was unavailable."
After a bit of googling, I find that I should be running the kaserver, I
do so by running /usr/afs/bin/kaserver as root in the xterm. How should
it be run, and with which arguments??
With kaserver running, I now get the error ...
"Unable to authenticate to AFS because user doesn't exist."
But the user exists! I created it with kadmin -q "addprinc <username>"
Further googling suggests I shouldn't be running kaserver, but kdc.
However I AM running krb5kdc, but it doesn't seem to be listening on
the same port as kaserver (7004)
I am confused and stuck. Can anyone put me in the right direction?
