Thanks.  I didn't notice that option since I'd been using this method since 
before I started using IPA.

Is the password used to genterate a principle still usable after a keytab has 
been exported?  I seem to remember from my pre-IPA days of using a plain old 
standalone MIT KDC that I couldn't use the password to authenticate after they 
keytab had been exported using kadmin.  Again, I never really investigated it, 
but the password never seemed to work after the keytab was exported.
