Dear Linux Admins

Changes in Sysdb are not possible using the API or the bob tool. Read access, which includes the boot menues, is still possible

The Kerberos keytab of will be replaced. The current one uses the deprecated RC4 cipher and it will get one with AES256.
When the new keytab has been created the AD will not accept the old keytab any more and thus there will be an outage until the new keytab is rolled out. Note that this only concerns changes as for read access no authentication is required.
