Dear All,

after updating to 4.5 the graphical login with an active directory user does not work anymore. Shell login still works, but the connection between user ID and name is broken, i.e. 'whoami' returns 'cannot find name for user ID XXXXX' where XXXXX is my user ID.

Steps to reproduce:

'net as info' gives the errors: 'create local_private_krb5_conf_for_domain: smb_mkstemp failed, for file var/cache/smb_tmp_krb5.YYYYYY' (YYYYY seems to be random) and 'Failed to open /var/lib/samba/private/secrets.tdb'.

'klist' gives the error: 'Credentials cache file '/tmp/krb5cc_XXXXX' not found' (XXXXX is my user ID)
'klist -k /etc/krb5.conf' gives the error: 'Unsuported key table format version number while starting keytab scan'

I've got the impression that some right changes introduced when updating causes the problems.

Thanks for your help in advance
This task depends upon
