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.
Kadmin from original MIT Kerberos has to flavors: kadmin and kadmin.local.

Only "kadmin.local" (which works locally on KDC) can export keytab without re-generating key (i.e. password).

Network version - "kadmin" - have to re-generate key before each export.

Simo can provide details about IPA get-keytab implementation.
