Subject: [EXTERNAL] S4U2Self and RODC

Hello Dochelp Team,

we have a test which returns KDC_ERR_C_PRINCIPAL_UNKNOWN when attempting to use S4U2Self with a TGT from an RODC. We wonder why it returns KDC_ERR_C_PRINCIPAL_UNKNOWN in this case.

The test can be run with this command:

SMB_CONF_PATH=/etc/samba/smb.conf REALM=EARTH.MILKYWAY.SITE DOMAIN=EARTH SERVER=win-dc01.earth.milkyway.site DC_SERVER=win-dc01.earth.milkyway.site
EXPECT_PAC=0 EXPECT_EXTRA_PAC_BUFFERS=0 CHECK_CNAME=0 CHECK_PADATA=0 PYTHONPATH=/home/asn/workspace/projects/samba/asn-asserted-identity/bin/python
python3 -m samba.subunit.run

win-dc01 is a RWDC (Windows Server 2022). The test creates an RODC account on the DC.

Attached is a capture of the above test which shows that the S4U2Self request fails in frame 573 with KDC_ERR_C_PRINCIPAL_UNKNOWN. Could you please clarify why it fails with this error?

Thank you very much for your help. I'm looking forward to hear from you.

Best regards
