I'm trying to generate a keytab file on my Solaris Kerberos client machine by issuing the following:
# kadmin -p admin/admin
Authenticating as principal admin/admin with password.
kadmin: Database error! Required KADM5 principal missing while initializing kadmin interface
and I'm getting the above error. I'm unable to move forward with this error message. I tried googling and I found a post that was talking about 'inetd.conf'. But there was no entry in that file regarding Kerberos. So that fix doesn't apply to me.
Note, that I had 32bit files before and I did run into this issue before but not sure how it got resolved. And then I updated the library with 64bit files and now I'm facing this issue once again.
I've issued the kadmin -p admin/admin command on other Kerberos client machines and they work fine. I'm able to get into the kadmin prompt. So, there is no issue with the user admin/admin.
I tried kadmin.local and here is what I get.
kadmin.local: No such file or directory while initializing kadmin.local interface
I'm not sure how to solve this issue. Any ideas?
