Hi Folks,

Has anyone else had trouble changing passwords from a Solaris client?

I'm using the Solaris 10 version of kpasswd:

/bin/kpasswd unsername
kpasswd: Changing password for username at EXAMPLE.COM.
Old password: <secrret>
kpasswd: Cannot establis a session with the Kerberos administrative  
server for realm EXAMPLE.COM. Database error! Required KADM5  
principal missing.

This works fine when I use the MIT Kerberos version of kpasswd.

Suggestions appreciated.
