I have gone through the docs/faq/and the krbdev/kerberos mailing lists.
Did create the extra principals (shown below) as was posted by Ken H. =
and Tom Y.
but I still can't get the server to come up. What is meant by service =
name in service=20
database? Was I supposed to create a service name for kadmind4!

KADM Server starting in the OVSEC_KADM mode (parent process id 16359).
error: Could not find service name in services database
Admin Server (kadm server) has completed operation.

The error message (in kadmin/v4server/kadm_server.h) is admittedly
vague. Sorry about that.

The problem is that you need to define kerberos_master in your
/etc/services file:

kerberos_master 751/tcp # Kerberos authentication

The V4 compat server should probably be changed to fall back to port 751
if it's not in /etc/services, or else the error message should be made
more clear.

I was doing a search for other problems and happened to run across this
open bug. Given that kadmind4 has been removed from the tree as of the
1.4 release, I think this bug could now be closed. --
