Hello Henry,

thanks for the answer.

Yes, this I noticed as well. The link
/etc/krb5/krb5.conf -> /etc/krb5.conf already exists. But unfortunately my 
problem is a different one. I'm using a self compiled OpenSSH (3.9p1) with
self compiled heimdal and so on... Sun's SSH has already been deinstalled ;-)

Our site uses Heimdal almost everywhere and on every platform. That's why 
we will use it on Solaris 10 as well. By now the Heimdal libs and the 
OpenSSH binaries are the same on Solaris 8 and 10. But they behave 
differently (Solaris 10 needs fqhn as hostname whereas Solaris 8 doesn't, 
name resolving is set up identically as well...).
