Known issues

  • Screen reading software (such as JAWS) does not read menus and will be fixed in a forthcoming release.
  • When upgrading from KfW 3.2, the krb5.ini file is archived as krb-ini-prekfw4 and is stored in the Windows folder. A new krb5.ini is created by the installer. If the previous krb5.ini contained realms other than ATHENA.MIT.EDU, WIN.MIT.EDU, and CSAIL.MIT.EDU, they will need to be manually added to the new krb5.ini.
  • When you change your password, MIT Kerberos for Windows does not confirm that the change has been completed.
