Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 6.3 (Santiago)
I made a post a while back regarding IPA and the forcing of the hostname
to be a FQDN entry, rather than utilising `hostname --fqdn`
Has this issue ever been addressed? As I've now bumped into an issue
with RSA Securid Auth Manager 6.1, which will not work on a server with
more than 27 characters in the hostname. Sadly our hostname does break
this is some cases.
I think Simo's answer in that thread is still true, there are many
Kerberized programs that use gethostname() to create principals. If you
removed this requirement you could be opening yourself up to other issues.
