How can I do a life of unlimited (with krb5)? I made the
modifications to the kdc.conf file so max_life and max_renewable_life
are both "0d". I set the lifetime on all the principals in the krb5
database and changed the configuration of pam_krb5afs in the krb5.conf
file to reflect these changes. I can see the afs service ticket and
token expire on 03:14:07 UTC on Tuesday, 19 January 2038 (which I
assume represents "unlimited"). The openafs server is, however,
rejecting the token outright.
