When attempting to manually run adsync, it fails with the error:

adsync error when requesting kerberos ticket kinit -k hostname : kinit password incorrect


This issue most likely arises because there is no active kerberos ticket available.

Run kinit to get a valid ticket. For example:

BoKS# kinit boks_ad@MYDOMAIN.COM

boks_ad@MYDOMAIN.COM's Password:

BoKS# klist

Credentials cache: FILE:/tmp/krb5cc_0

Principal: boks_ad@MYDOMAIN.COM

Issued Expires Principal

Feb 12 06:00:48 Feb 12 16:00:48 krbtgt/MYDOMAIN.COM@MYDOMAIN.COM

Join the AD domain again:

BoKS# adjoin join MYDOMAIN.COM

Try running adsync again:

BoKS# adsync

In this example, the boks_ad user is the AD user with appropriate administrative permissions to join computers to the domain.
