1.5 quality score

We run a couple of automated
scans to help you access a
module's quality. Each module is
given a score based on how well
the author has formatted their
code and documentation and
modules are also checked for
malware using VirusTotal.

Please note, the information below
is for guidance only and neither of
these methods should be considered
an endorsement by Puppet.

You can configure thru 'krb5' class next things:

autoupgrade - Upgrade packages automatically, if there is a newer version. Default: true.

ensure - Ensure if present or absent. Default: present.

package - Name of the package (or packages). Only set this, if your platform is not supported or you know, what you're doing. Default: auto-set (in params.pp), platform specific

config_file - Main configuration file. Only set this, if your platform is not supported or you know, what you're doing. Default: auto-set (in params.pp), platform specific

config_file_static - Copy configuration file from specified location. Set location if you want to replicate static config file. Default: undef

class{ 'krb5': config_file => '/tmp/krb5.conf', package => [ 'libkrb53', 'krb5-user' ] }

You can configure thru 'krb5::config' part of libdefaults and appdefaults options:

Look at config.pp for supported options and it is default values.

class{ 'krb5::config': krb5default => 'TEST.RU', krb5ticket_lifetime => '25h', krb5renew_lifetime => '120h', krb5forwardable => 'true', krb5proxiable => 'true', krb5enctype => ['arcfour-hmac-md5','aes256-cts','aes128-cts','des3-cbc-sha1','des-cbc-md5','des-cbc-crc'], krb5pam => {'external' => 'true', 'krb4_convert' => 'false', 'krb4_convert_524' => 'false', 'krb4_use_as_req' => 'false' } ... }

You can configure thru 'krb5::realm' class, your realms. For supported values, look at config.pp

krb5::realm{ 'TEST.RU': default_domain => '', kdc => ['', '' ], kpasswd_server => '', admin_server => '', v4_name_convert => { 'host' => { 'rcmd' => 'host' }
