AFS and IRIX 5.2

AFS and IRIX 5.2

Post by R. Scott Butl » Sun, 04 Sep 1994 04:42:13



I'm in the process of installing AFS on IRIX 5.2 and, as the documentation
points out, the IRIX 5.2 login program is AFS aware.  Unfortunately, it
attempts to contact Transarc's kaserver process.

Since we already have an installed base of MIT kerberos, we aren't running
kaserver.  This results in a 30 second hang and then local authentication.

Having the regular login authenticate and get tokens seems like a wonderful
idea but how do I tell the code to use /etc/krb.conf and communicate with
kerberos rather than attempting to contact kaserver?

I've contacted the SGI helpline but they seem to be having trouble figuring
out where in SGI to get an answer.

1. Emacs 19.27 on Irix 5.2 and AFS 3.3a

                  %%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%
                        Recipe for Crashing an SGI
                  %%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%

        Ingredients:
          1 SGI workstation                  AFS 3.3a (Andrew File System)
          Irix 5.2 OS                        Emacs 19.27

        Directions:
          0. Configure emacs using x-11 and x-toolkit, SGI C compiler
          1. Type make all
          2. Wait until emacs compiles
          3. Workstation will hang, then crash when emacs is dumped.

        Comments:
          This is extremely irritating, and completely repeatable. Net
          rumors suggest emacs 19.27 builds fine under Irix 5.2 when
          it is built in a local directory (not under AFS).

        Any help that makes this recipe obsolete would be appreciated!
