Bug#1002299: debian-edu-config: hosts installed via the minimal profile lack libpam-krb5 and fail to mount NFS krb5i shares on TJENER

Hi Mike,

As far as I can tell, this is done by intention: it's not a system 
providing user access by default.

From the documented profile description:
(see: https://wiki.debian.org/DebianEdu/Documentation/Bookworm/Installation#The_installation_process )
This profile will install the base packages and configure the machine to 
integrate into the Debian Edu network, but without any services and 
applications. It is useful as a platform for single services manually 
moved out from the main-server.

To access such a system over the network, run (thanks to kerberized SSH) 
as root (on a system on the main network):
kinit ssh <host>
or use scp

(Assuming the minimal system has been added correctly using GOsa² and 
the generated krb5.keytab has been copied to the minimal system like 
explained in the manual, see:
https://wiki.debian.org/DebianEdu/Documentation/Bookworm/GettingStarted#Machine_Management_with_GOsa.2BALI- )
