GSSAPI authentication on AIX requires additional steps to extract shared Kerberos libraries.

To extract the Kerberos libraries on IBM AIX

  1. Change directories to the directory containing the static Kerberos libraries (usually /usr/lib).

    # cd /usr/lib

  2. Run the following command to extract the shared Kerberos library:

    # ar -v -x libkrb5.a

  3. Run the following command to extract the shared GSSAPI library:

    # ar -v -x libgssapi_krb5.a
