Apparently this is the recommended setting by openfire.

when I set isInitiator=true; and reload openfire I get this error in the

 Debug is  true storeKey true useTicketCache false useKeyTab true
doNotPrompt true ticketCache is null isInitiator true KeyTab is
/opt/openfire/conf/openfire.keytab refreshKrb5Config is false principal is

principal's key obtained from the keytab
Acquire TGT using AS Exchange

I am not sure why it does not work, but it doesn't. Believe me, I tried :-)

According to the person who wrote this community doc

" Since the xmpp service principal is only a service principal, and not
mapped to an actual user account, we need to ensure that Java never
attempts to treat it like a user account.  In order to assure that, we have
to add an additional line to gss.conf -- isInitiator.".

In the AD setups, the isInitiator directive is not necessary, apparently.
That is why I could not get it to work with the instructions on their site
until I found that clue.
