pam_krb5: try to get a token in the cell containing the user's home directory (deleted)

Description wingc 2005-05-06 21:49:43 UTC
Description of problem:

pam_krb5 only attempts to get a token for the workstation's local cell by
default, not the cell containing a user's home directory. Arguably, it should
try to get a token for the cell containing the user's home directory, if it
differs from the local cell.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Tested on RHEL4, pam_krb5-2.1.2-1

How reproducible:

Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Configure a user with home directory in a different AFS cell than the
system's default AFS cell
2. Try to log in with pam_krb5
  
Actual results:

pam_krb5 obtains tokens for the system's default cell, not the cell containing
the user's home directory.

Expected results:

pam_krb5 should obtain a token for the user's home directory in all cases
(assuming the home directory in in AFS), else things are not going to work right.

Additional info:

A patch enhancing pam_krb5 so that it attempts to get a token for the user's
home directory (if different from the system's default cell) is available at:
