Am using kadmin.local / kadmin to remove an entry from my keytab but
everytime I do so - I get a hang after I specify ktremove.

Used gdb to look at the location of the hang - its in
__KerberosInternal_krb5_lock_file @lock_file.c:111

using gdb I could figure out that it was trying to get an Exclusive lock but
couldnt figure out on which file.
bt showed -

Can anyone help me here? Would like to know which file is ktremove trying to
get a lock on
