prashant  sodhiya

I've a installed kerberos( on a machine having a network interface en0.
my hostname is (IP is is base IP .
Now i add an alias name to en0 say (IP is
In my krb5.conf file
here are my entries:

        MY_REALM.COM = {
                kdc =
                admin_server =
                default_domain =

Now after this if  execute kpasswd say for a principal prashant.
i see :
Unable to change password.
        Status 0x96c73a26 - Incorrect net address.
Though my password is changed !!
Ny guess why is it happening.
If i change admin_server works fine...
I guess if i specify the fully qualified name of my host corresponding to base IP address in kadmin server things works fine...
pls help me why is it so ?
