Description Jenny Galipeau 2010-05-11 14:04:40 UTC
Description of problem:
The ability to write the kdcinfo file with a default (unreachable) IP address when the KDC can't be reached at startup was recently implemented.

However, the side-effect of this is that the KDC can thereafter not be reached by any application seeking to use it until an SSSD-provided kerberos login is performed.

    We should add an online callback to forcibly invoke be_resolve_server_send() to ensure that this file gets rewritten as soon as we are online.
