[SOLVED] Host principal not found in Kerberos database.
« on: March 22, 2016, 10:19:32 am »
Hello Zentyal Experts,

I have a Zentyal 4.2 box installed. I was having trouble adding a vdomain and creating mail accounts for my users. Tracking down the problem, it looks like Zentyal could not connect to AD Schema Master because of an underlying Kerberos error.

/var/log/syslog:


Mar 22 10:13:47 acme-sbs [sssd[ldap_child[3137]]]: Failed to initialize credentials using keytab [/var/lib/samba/private/secrets.keytab]: Client 'host/acme-sbs.acme.com.tr@ACME.COM.TR' not found in Kerberos database. Unable to create GSSAPI-encrypted LDAP connection.
Mar 22 10:13:47 acme-sbs [sssd[ldap_child[3137]]]: Client 'host/acme-sbs.acme.com.tr@ACME.COM.TR' not found in Kerberos database


/etc/sssd/sssd.conf:
[sssd]
    services = nss, pam
    config_file_version = 2
    domains = acme.com.tr

[nss]
    entry_negative_timeout = 0
    debug_level = 5

[pam]
    debug_level = 5

[domain/acme.com.tr]
    debug_level = 5
    enumerate = false

    id_provider = ad
    auth_provider = ad
    chpass_provider = ad
    access_provider = ad


    dyndns_update = false

    ad_hostname = acme-sbs.acme.com.tr
    ad_server = acme-sbs.acme.com.tr
    ad_domain = acme.com.tr

    ldap_schema = ad
    ldap_id_mapping = false

    fallback_homedir = /home/%u
    default_shell = /bin/bash

    ldap_sasl_mech = gssapi
    ldap_sasl_authid = host/acme-sbs.acme.com.tr
    krb5_keytab = /var/lib/samba/private/secrets.keytab
    ldap_krb5_init_creds = true

Dumping the ldap enries, I see the following host principal:

Any idea how to fix this issue?

I believe I have found a solution. I am reporting back here to resolve the issue.

Here is what I have done:

- A few quick google search results implied that it is possible that a service principal is not issued TGT at least by Microsoft AD. Only user principals are able to get a TGT.
- Following this lead, I have found out that HOST principal was did not have userPrincipalName attribute in LDAP/
- I have inserted a userPrincipalName attribute using ldbedit on by Zentyal box:

   > ldbedit -e vim -H /var/lib/samba/private/sam.ldb

  added
   userPrincipalName: HOST/acme-sbs.acme.com.tr/acme.com.tr@ACME.COM.TR

 > rebooted the box.


Then the issue disappeared.
