Server had a GSS-API erro

Hi everyone .. I have ran into a weird one.


#ssh serverC
Server had a GSS-API error; the connection will close (458752/2):
No credentials were supplied, or the credentials were unavailable or inaccessible
No such file or directory

But when the user does an ssh from
ServerB to ServerA works
ServerA to ServerB or ServerC works
ServerC to ServerB or ServerA works

Only Server B to Server C give this error.

Now on ServerB if I run klist I see the following:

/usr/bin/klist -f
Ticket cache: FILE:/tmp/krb5cc_7141
Default principal: myuser@mydomain.corp

Valid starting Expires Service principal
05/08/12 11:19:12 05/08/12 21:19:11 krbtgt/mydomain
Flags: IA
05/08/12 11:19:12 05/08/12 21:19:11 host/ServerB
Flags: A
05/08/12 11:19:14 05/08/12 21:19:11 host/ServerC@

After doing some testing .. ServerC is the only one that doesnt drop from the klist output.
All of the other ones dont have that issue.

When I run kdestroy .. that clears it up and ssh works without any issues.

For now I set up the .profile to run a kdestroy when logging in.

But I would like to figure out what is causing this issue.

Any ideas? I think it is pam related?
But I am not sure what I am looking for.
