SSH and Kerberos

I have 2 servers (lft1 and lft3) running AIX 5.3 ML 5. Both are installed with krb5.client.rte and openssh.base.server

I have configured some of the users on both servers to authenticate against our Windows 2003 Active Directory. From my PC, I can use telnet to login successfully to either server with these users. Also from my PC, I can ssh to the server lft3 using these users, but on lft1, I cannot. I get "access denied". To test that sshd is working correctly on lft1, I created a new user authenticated locally on lft1. I was able to login successfully with this new user on lft1 using ssh.

The files /etc/krb5/krb5.conf and /etc/ssh/sshd_config are the same on both servers.

Any advice on how to resolve this problem?

There are some files on lft3 (the server that I can ssh to) that do not exist on lft1.

I tried copying these files from lft3 to lft1, but I still can't ssh to lft1.

Anyone know what the *ibm files are used for?
