Very glad to see a test report. Sound like you followed the right

This sound very strange, and do not happen in my testing. What is the

Did you use a very short password? This sound like the problem that
d-i accept any password, but Kerberos reject too short passwords,
leaving us with a initial user that can't log into the desktop, but
probably can log in to Gosa.

You need to log in with the initial user to get privileges in Gosa.
The admin user do not have Gosa privileges.
