Today I came across a strange issue on my server running Debian Squeeze, when I added a new user and tried to change the password for this user using

passwd newuser

it keep on asking for ‘current kerberos password’ and didn’t work

At last I found out that it is due to a packageĀ Kerberos on the system and removing it will solve the issue, just remove it using

$ Sudo aptitude purge libpam-krb5

Thanks to the post
