SUMMARY : Solaris 9 9/05 sshd and kerberos could this be a BUG

From: Saxon, Stuart <>

Thanks for the responses.

In the end I have had to make the following changes to my system.

 StrictHostKeyChecking no
To /etc/ssh/ssh_config
Add these
    GSSAPIAuthentication no
    GSSAPIKeyExchange no
    GSSAPIStoreDelegatedCredentials no
To /etc/ssh/sshd_config
And remove

I can now ssh in and out of my test server fine. I am a little concerned
with what the two entries in the krb5.conf file do or do not do ...... I
am no kerberos expert, perhaps someone could enlighten me. I will of
course read up on it also.

Hi There,

Jun  9 21:42:48 sol9-test sshd[1546]: Kerberos mechanism library
initialization error: No profile file open.

I get this message when I initialise a putty session from my laptop to
the sol9-test server immediately after I enter my NIS account name but
not before then entering my NIS passwd.

I have noticed that this was raised by 'loris serena' back in March I
don't see a summary.

Is this a BUG/Feature

I am patched up to March 2006 via the EISCD

My ssh version is "Sun_SSH_1.1, SSH protocols 1.5/2.0, OpenSSL
