You don't have to resort to a cron job to request and refresh a TGT. It's much simpler to use a keytab for your service and let Kerberos acquire a TGT automatically. You can either place the keytab in a special location, set the env var KRB5_CLIENT_KTNAME or use GSSProxy to handle the keytab for you. With a client keytab, you don't have to call kinit at all.
