Is it supported to run a mixed ldap bind / kerberos environment? I'm
thinking of letting all old RHEL4 and RHEL5 systems keep running ldap
bind authentication, and only enable kerberos/sssd on RHEL6 initially.

After 3 months, or so, all users should have been forced to change their
passwords trough the password expiry policy. Will then the RHEL4/5
klients also update kerberos password when they're forced to change their
LDAP password ?
