kinit: Password incorrect while getting initial credentials [SOLVED]

on August 3rd, 2017 by Hades | No Comments »

When I tried kinit -kt [email protected], I get “kinit: Password incorrect while getting initial credentials”

[[email protected] ~]# ktutil 
ktutil:  addent -password -p [email protected] -k 1 -e aes256-cts-hmac-sha1-96
Password for [email protected]: 
ktutil:  wkt test.keytab
ktutil:  q
[[email protected] ~]# kinit [email protected] -k -t test.keytab
kinit: Password incorrect while getting initial credentials

Upon deep investigation, I’ve managed to find an excellent workaround:

$ kinit [email protected]
$ ipa-getkeytab -p [email protected] -k test.keytab -e aes256-cts-hmac-sha1-96

and you will see a result:

[[email protected] ~]# kinit [email protected] -k -t test.keytab
[[email protected] ~]#
