Yes, it does. I don't see what the problem is having to authenticate to each 
server. It is more secure that way, I think they are just used to being able to 
take shortcuts. I guess if they really fuss about it we could set up 
forwardable tickets. I would definitely prefer to have all of the service 
accounts be on the server rather than local

Thanks,

      tickets, kinit ?f. Has anyone used this in place of SSH keys, or
      do you have other suggestions? There are a few service accounts
      scripted to work with SSH keys so we may have to leave a few local
      accounts on the servers. I don?t particularly like that idea.

Hi Sara

The big difference here is your users will see this as you taking something 
away from them. Yes kerberos tickets will work perfectly in this situation, I 
do this myself. The issue you need to be aware of is that they will expire, as 
they should. An SSH key is nothing more than bypassing an authentication 
process.

I would recommend using centralized service accounts in place of more local 
accounts, as this way you will always be able to manage them in the future.

Does this help?
