Dear All,

I have tried to propagate my kerberos database
from my old master
to   my new slave
but without any luck.

<< Main characters in my tragedy >>
0] master:
[root at london ~]# cat /etc/issue
Mandrakelinux release 10.2 (Limited Edition 2005) for i586
Kernel on an i686 / \l

[root at london /]# rpm -qa | grep krb

1] slave:
root at tt-u1404:/var/lib/krb5kdc# cat /etc/issue
Ubuntu 14.04 LTS \n \l

root at tt-u1404:/var/lib/krb5kdc# aptitude show krb5-admin-server | grep
Version: 1.12+dfsg-2ubuntu4
root at tt-u1404:/var/lib/krb5kdc# aptitude show krb5-kdc | grep Version
Version: 1.12+dfsg-2ubuntu4

<< The problem >>
[root at london ~]# kprop -f ~/temp/slave_datatrans prompt back and it hangs...

<<My sad attempts>>
- I have googled, but I have not found very much.
- I have read your archive. Apparently some people had a similar problem.
  It seems to me that they were using two versions of Kerberos that were
  too different... Well, it sounds familiar :-)

<<My questions>>
- Any idea how to solve the above problem?
- If you think that the two kerberos versions are too different, can you
  think a different strategy to solve the problem?

Sorry for my long email.

Kind regards,
