I want to install kerberos on AlmaLinux as server to manage ubuntu clients. is this possible? i read somewhere that in order to use kerberos, "Both devices have the same operating system".

so both systems must use ubuntu?

"I want to install kerberos on AlmaLinux " That is off topic. We know almost nothing about almalinux. Please use Mind that from the looks of it almalinux is a REDHAT clone.

Please refer, Ubuntu and *official* flavors of Ubuntu ( are on-topic on this site. The on-topic link provides alternate SE sites for non-Ubuntu OSes.

Your linked page says ".. explanation of how to set up and design Kerberos in a Cluster" and "Introduce Kerberos KDC client on every one of the nodes or machines in the cluster..."

So unless you're planning to do just that, the page doesn't seem to be applicable. I'm not aware of any restrictions regarding the client OS.

The MIT Kerberos Documentation page is the best place to find up-to-date info.

I sit in a Tesla and translated this thread with Ai:

Most people don’t grasp that asking a lot of questions unlocks learning and improves interpersonal bonding. In Alison’s studies, for example, though people could accurately recall how many questions had been asked in their conversations, they didn’t intuit the link between questions and liking. Across four studies, in which participants were engaged in conversations themselves or read transcripts of others’ conversations, people tended not to realize that question asking would influence—or had influenced—the level of amity between the conversationalists.
