Description Mikhail T. 2017-12-29 15:27:42 UTC
Although an option to use the system's MIT Kerberos implementation is available, there is no obvious way to request use of the already installed Heimdal -- Samba's bundled code is used unconditionally.

Please, provide the necessary configure-support -- and default to system Heimdal, unless explicitly asked to use a different Kerberos implementation.
Comment 1 Christof Schmitt 2019-10-30 20:40:43 UTC
There is a configure option --with-system-heimdalkrb5

Unfortunately that broke with Samba 4.10. Bugzilla 14179 is
tracking the fix for this breakage.
