Maybe the solution, then, is to bump it up to 2 or 3, but that is a change that is not taken lightly and requires planning before implementation.

What password type do you have specified in the system values on i5/OS.
Types 2 and 3, I believe, will support mixed case passwords.

I am getting closer to getting this to work between our Windows Kerberos server and i5OS. I think my current problem is related to mixed case passwords. Our Windows domain is setup to require the use of mixed case passwords so when I did the iSeries Navigator Wizard to setup Kerberos I used a mixed case password (e.g. not the real one but something like Kt639hJ). When I issue the command kinit -k krbsvr400/<mailto:krbsvr400/>
I get an EUVF06016E Password not correct error If I leave the -k off and issue the command
Kinit krbsvr400/<mailto:krbsvr400/>
And then enter the mixed case password I get a valid ticket issued

Does anyone know for sure if the i5OS half of this process can't deal with mixed case passwords? We do not have long passwords enabled for normal signon and there is nothing in the Kerberos manual that I can find that says mixed case passwords are not allowed
