Hello, I've run into this issue too, on Ubuntu 14.04. I managed to figure out that this is caused by a different version of the python-kerberos package. The authGSSClientInit method signature has changed.
I checked out the "release-3-3-4" tag in git, and made the following change to fix it: diff --git a/ipalib/rpc.py b/ipalib/rpc.py index 81e7aa3..ce5f2a0 100644 --- a/ipalib/rpc.py +++ b/ipalib/rpc.py @@ -380,7 +380,7 @@ class KerbTransport(SSLTransport): service = "HTTP@" + host.split(':') try: - (rc, vc) = kerberos.authGSSClientInit(service, self.flags) + (rc, vc) = kerberos.authGSSClientInit(service, gssflags=self.flags) except kerberos.GSSError, e: self._handle_exception(e) I'm still getting the following error after this fix, and will post another comment if I manage to fix that one too.
