Re: KRBCRED files



fixed

I agree he should call IBM.

But it certainly could be authority (or attribute). I've seen it with
other processes where the user running the process/job simply doesn't have
proper authority to the file or directory it's in to remove it.

Sort of like temp MIME files piling up in a directory because the user
sending the email didn't have authority to the directory to remove the
files. (ie, user BOBSMITH creates the file, and an SMTP job running under
QTCP tries to remove it after the email is sent).

IBM themselves had that happen back in V5R3 with the /tmp directory.

I think Matt should call IBM support - these are put there by the Kerberos
support (Network Authentication Service), I'd think, and that is a system
thing - should have no issues with authority.

But only IBM really knows.

Most likely an authority issue to the IFS directory and/or files
themselves. Whatever application is creating them probably doesn't have
the authority to remove them.

Anyone know what the Kerberos krbcred_xxxx files are for in the
/QIBM/UserData/OS400/NetworkAuthentication/creds/ folder are for on the

We have thousands of files in here dating back to 2006 and I'm wondering
why they are sticking around.
