Synopsis: error reporting
Severity: non-critical

kadmin returns:
Authenticating as principal root/admin@RANDYTOOL.NET with password.
kadmin: Required parameters in kdc.conf missing while initializing kadmin interface

No log records the error. I wish I knew what required parameters.
kadmin.local runs.

Trying to use sclient, I get this error message:

sendauth rejected, error reply is:
" No such file or directory"

syslog records:

sserver: recvauth failed--No such file or directory

I wish it would tell me what file or directory it did not find. I
figured out that it missed /etc/krb5.keytab, which I did not create
because kadmin did not run. I figured out how to create it with

After I got sserver/sclient and sim_server/sim_client working. I
tried the Cyrus SASL sample server. It returns 'No principal in
keytab matches desired name'. I wish I knew what principal it lacked.
I use the same account and service I used with sclient and sim_client.

Obvious, I think.

Make the error reports more discursive.
