DSfW: Kerberos fails to start in provisioning wizard

This document (7013234) is provided subject to the disclaimer at the end of this document.

Environment

Open Enterprise Server 11 SP1 (OES11SP1)
Domain Services for Windows
DSfW

Situation

Kerberos fails to start
xad-krb5kdc fails to start
xadsd fails to start

Resolution

Take a NMAS trace while starting xad-krb5kdc and look for errors.  In this case we saw

Looking at the Login Policy, located under the security container by default, the following Login Sequences were either missing or not installed.

IPCExternal, Negotiate, Kerberos, GSSAPI, DigestMD5, and ChllengeResponse were either deactivated or missing.  Re-installing the methods should create the sequences.

To install or re-install a method use nmasinst with the following syntax
/opt/novell/eDirectory/bin/nmasinst -addmethod 'user.context' 'TREE' /opt/novell/xad/share/nmasmthd/IPCExternal/config.txt -h ip-adder

example:
/opt/novell/eDirectory/bin/nmasinst -addmethod 'cn=admin.o=novell' 'NOVELL-TREE' /opt/novell/xad/share/nmasmthd/IPCExternal/config.txt -h 192.168.0.52

Reboot the server when finished and check that the sequences are active.

Cause

Key NMAS Sequences used by DSfW were disabled, namely IPCExternal, Negotiate, Kerberos, GSSAPI, DigestMD5, and ChllengeResponse
