The adclient.dc.switch.update.krb5.conf configuration parameter specifies that adclient updates the krb5.conf file immediately with the current domain controller when adclient switches the domain controller, such as in failover situations. This can be helpful in situations where third party applications use the krb5.conf file to locate the domain controllers that adclient uses.

By default, this parameter is true.

If this parameter is set to false, then adclient does not update the krb5.conf file with the updated domain controller information immediately but at the next update interval that's specified by the krb5.config.update parameter.
