Boot Error SUNW-MSG-ID: AK-8000-9

I'm in the process of upgrade the firmware on my 7420 to 2013. and encountered the bug described in the AK-8000-9T Tech-note.  I applied the  krb5_check.akwf workflow prior to the upgrade and I'm still getting the same error "The application kit failed to initialize".

is there another work around or is it possible for me to touch the  krb5.config file when the system ask for the user to hit:

"ESC-3: HALT     ESC-4: Reboot      ESC-5: Info"
