@AndyRussG: I've enabled your access. You should already be able to log into stat1010.eqiad.wmnet. The other servers will follow within the next 30 minutes after Puppet has deployed the change everywhere.

I've also created a new Kerberos principal for your account, you should have gotten an email with further instructions how to change your password.

Resolving. If you run into any issues, please reopen the task!

Approved, welcome back Andy :)

Woohoo, thanks! :) :)

@AndyRussG: I've enabled your access. [...]

ssh login and Kerberos both working great, thanks!
