Well,

When I set this environment variable and invoke ssh, it does not
recognize the environment variable, instead, it prompts for password.

If set the environment variable and run the kinit command, I see the
error:

"kinit: Unable to make 'Initial default ccache' the new system
default cache"


So, I started using SUN's Java class
sun.security.krb5.internal.tools.Kinit

When I cache the ticket obtained using this Java class on to a file
system and if I execute the command

klist -c

it does not recognize any tickets in that cache file.

Has this got something to do with the use of Java class
sun.security.krb5.internal.tools.Kinit, whose implementation is may
be lacking functionality provided by the kinit executable?

NOTE: Please note the change in email address.

I am not tired anymore.
