ssh should try fqdn of hosts when using gssapi

Bug #28488 reported by Björn Torkelsson on 2006-01-13
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
openssh (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

I'm trying out the GSSAPI support in openssh and trid to ssh to a host using first shortname and then the fqdn name of the host. The keytab of the host is using the fqdn.

When using the fqdn everything works as it should but when using the shortname I get a question if I would accept the hostkey for the host, i.e the key exchange fails.

A output of 'ssh -v -v fqdn-hostname' which succeds.

log of issuing 'ssh -v -v shortname' which fails.

Seems to be fixed in 4.3p2-7ubuntu1 (i.e feisty). Don't now if it is fixed in edgy.

It seems that it needs the "GSSAPITrustDNS yes" option for it to work.
