I consider this a lon-capa issue as it is related to the
authentication of my users.
The lon-capa students here log on with their university assigned
username and passwords. I authenticate this via kerberos to
the Active Directory Domain servers.
in my krb5.conf file i have:
which is the DNS record for the domain. It returns multiple
addressed (for the multiple Domain Controllers)
*If* the first reported address is unusable for some reason,
authentication fails (it does not try another address).
I know other admins use kerberos to authenticate lon-capa users.
How do you provide redundancy in this case?
