You should look at the bootstrap/ which packages we require to 
actually run selftest.

Or you just run:


If a test is failing you need to debug it. Somewhere normally you have the 
expanded command printed out. Note it!

Check against which env the test failed and start it.

make testenv SELFTEST_TESTENV="ad_member"

You will get an xterm (you have to have xterm installed). Paste the expanded 
comment and it will run the test. You can add debugger or add options to 
increase debug output.

If you want to increase it on the server side use e.g.:

make testenv SELFTEST_TESTENV="ad_member" SERVER_LOG_LEVEL="1 kerberos:10"

If you want to learn more about selftest, start to read the 
and all the sub-pages!
