Temporarily Disabling a Kerberos Service on a Host

At times, you might need to temporarily disable the authentication mechanism for a service, such as ssh or ftp, on a network application server. For example, you might want to stop users from logging in to a system while you are performing maintenance procedures.

Note -  By default, most services require authentication. If a service does not require authentication, then disabling authentication has no effect. The service is still available.
