Clustered IDP needs manual copy of Kerberos configuration files

Novell Access Manager 3.0.4
Novell Access Manager 3.1
Novell Access Manager 3 Linux Novell Identity Server
Kerberos Authentication has been configured


When using Kerberos authentication and you want to run this in a clustered IDP environment there is a need to manually copy the bcsLogin.conf and the
nidpkey.keytab file to the other cluster node(s)
When adding a new IDP to the cluster this step does not happen automatically.

Copy the files to the default location on the Identity Server:
SLES 10: /opt/novell/java/jre/lib/security
SLES 9: /usr/lib/java/jre/lib/security


Added an enhancement request to make the manual copy process part of the assign to cluster task.
