I installed Samba4 according to the HOWTO. The provisioning created a
user (dns) and a keytab for DNS updates, but the service principal in
the keytab seems to be wrong for me (the domain name instead of
What would be the correct way of changing / adding service principals
associated with a user and re-generating the keytab?
I got the dns updates working by adding a new user with ADUC and
creating the keytab with ktpass on a windows machine joined to the
domain, but that seems unnecessarily complicated and results in a keytab
with different encryption methods compared to the one created by provision.
Besides dns, service principals and keytabs are needed also for a bunch
of other services (imap, smtp, http); would the same methods apply?
