Kerberos and RHCE exam.

Share this link

Even though Kerberos understanding doesn’t seem to be critical for passing the RHCE exam, it is still in the objectives list. For this reason and because I’m fundamentally curious, I have written some instructions to configure a Kerberos client and set up a KDC (Kerberos Distribution Server).
Besides Kerberos configuration, I learned one thing: be careful when writing your /etc/hosts file with services like Kerberos. They only accept the following sequence: ip address, full qualified domaine name, name alias. Otherwise, because of reverse host resolution, they just don’t work!

    Hi,
    Then in the RHCE exam questions are not related to KERBEROS?

      I said I hadn’t seen RHCE exam questions related to Kerberos but it doesn’t mean that none was asked in the past.
