Subject Re: ApacheDS + GSSAPI/Kerberos problem "Failed to find any Kerberos Key"
Date Tue, 14 Jun 2011 08:16:58 GMT

Thanks for the help. However, my passwords are actually stored in plain
text, so I don't think this is the problem.

I used Apache Directory Studio to create the ldif file, and it appears
to automatically hash the passwords when you export as LDIF.
