I am trying to use krb5_change_password() api to change the password after
successfully obtaining the kadmin/changepw ticket and using the same

1. However, the api call fails and I am getting this error code 1117618064
in field *([out]* *result_code* - Numeric error code from server). How to
decipher this error code ?

2. Are result strings returned by this api UTF8 encoded (as mentioned in
RFC) ? Because I am using JNI method NewStringUTF() and getting error of
strings are not being valid UTF8.
