Not failing over from Kerberos

I have some Solaris 9 servers on my network along with two Solaris 10 servers. In the session configuration for the Solaris 9 servers, Kerberos is a configuration authentication mechanism, and I'm able to connect with password-based authentication without issue, so I'm assuming it's failing over from the Kerberos auth. I recently reinstalled the two Solaris 10 machines, but ever since then SecureCRT doesn't fail over to password auth like it used to. If I removed krb5 from the list for key exchange, then it will work.

Hello joeldavis,

What version of SecureCRT are you using?

It's often useful to see trace options output which provides debugging information that may help us better understand the problem that you're experiencing.

To enable trace options output:
  • First, open SecureCRT's main File pull-down menu and select Trace Options. If you open the File pull down menu again you should see a checkmark next to Trace Options, indicating that troubleshooting output is now enabled.
  • Next, connect to the remote machine. With trace options enabled, you will notice debugging information displayed in the terminal window that isn't normally there by default when SecureCRT is attempting to establish a connection, and at certain times throughout the lifetime of the connection.
  • Once the problem occurs, please right-click inside the terminal window and choose Select All, then right-click again and choose Copy to transfer the information to the clipboard.
  • Finally, open a text editor, paste the information from the clipboard into the editor program, and save it as a text file.
Since trace options can contain sensitive information, feel free to send it as an attachment via e-mail to support@vandyke.com. Please reference "Attn Brenda - Forum Thread #10618" in the subject line.

Please provide trace options output from the success case (Solaris 9) and the failure cases (Solaris 10).
