Novell Open Enterprise Server 2SP1 (OES 2SP1)
Domain Services for Windows


Updated Samba from 3.0.28-0.5 to 3.0.36-0.11.1
The new samba looks for a krb5.keytab in the /etc directory.  There is a symbolic link in the /etc to /var/opt/novell/xad/ds/krb5kdc/krb5.keytab.

The symbolic link to the krb5.keytab is removed after applying the latest samba


Create a symbolic link in /etc

ln -s /var/opt/novell/novell/xad/ds/krb5kdc/krb5.keytab /etc/krb5.keytab

Restart DSfW services

xadcntrl reload
