#1994 Complain loudly if backend doesn't start due to missing or invalid keytab
Closed: Fixed None Opened 7 years ago by jhrozek.

The sssd_be loads the keytab on start and checks for the expected principal. In case the keytab is wrong or the principal is missing, there is no explanation with the default logging, just:

(Thu Jun 20 17:50:54 2013) [sssd[be[ipa.example.com]]] [load_backend_module] (0x0010): Error (2) in module (ipa) initialization (sssm_ipa_id_init)!
(Thu Jun 20 17:50:54 2013) [sssd[be[ipa.example.com]]] [be_process_init] (0x0010): fatal error initializing data providers
(Thu Jun 20 17:50:54 2013) [sssd[be[ipa.example.com]]] [main] (0x0010): Could not initialize backend [2]

We should make it clear that the back end didn't start due to wrong keytab.

Output from 'select_principal_from_keytab' seems enough for me - what else should we be hiniting?

After discussing this ticket with Jakub we decided that current logging message is sufficient, so we can close the ticket.
