Hi ,

I am using Java GSSAPI as server and MIT Kerberos as client. In my
authentication testing I faced following problem some times like 
"gss_init_sec_context() failed: Unspecified GSS failure.  Minor code may
provide more information Mutual authentication failed".

Can I know what might be the problem?

It is not continues failure, it is very rare.

 I am using kerberos release libraries.
