Subject [jira] [Commented] (DIRKRB-120) Enhance KDC Server to respect kdc.conf file
Date Thu, 15 Jan 2015 09:41:34 GMT


Emmanuel Lecharny commented on DIRKRB-120:

It's not going to fly. There are several things that is not good in this path :

- total lack of Javadoc. Keep in mind that this could will have to be maintained, and this
goes with documentation.
- things like :

+    Assert.assertEquals(krbConfig.getDefaultLoggingLocation(), "FILE:/var/log/krb5libs.log");

are not acceptable if we are targetting the main platforms the server is likely to run. One
of them being a minor OS, but used by 90% of the companies : Windows.

Instead of proposing patches that enforce a specific platform, I'd rather see a discussion
about what is the impact of setting such config value, and how we can make it work on any

- Last, not least, I have no idea what this issue is about. Where does the current code is
wrong, and what needs to be fixed ? I'd like to see a clear description on what need to be
done, and why it needs to be done.

Thanks !
