Thank you for the info !

What do you mean by saying "when building Kerberos named something like
updates database" ?
Did you test this feature ?

Re: How to lock/unlock the user

It's an undocumented feature that you need to specify when building
Kerberos named something like updates database. And the "kadmin modprinc
(+-)allow_tix principal@realm" allows you to enable/disable the account.
I believe the number of failed attempts before blacklisting is kept in
the kdc.conf file.
