Mammoth upgrade to 5.1 or Mammoth 5.1 installations fail on the "SetupKDC" step in clusters with AD Kerberos enabled.

The Mammoth failure at the "SetupKDC" step looks like:

"ERROR: Unable to create oracle user on the Active Directory, please make sure that
the Oracle OS and Cloudera admin passwords meet your Active Directory password restrictions before continuing."

Checking the file: /opt/oracle/BDAMammoth/bdaconfig/tmp/createaduser.out, shows output like below, which indicates there is a problem creating a user called oracle@<REALM>.

ldap_add: Already exists (68)
additional info: 00002071: UpdErr: DSID-<DSID>, problem 6005 (ENTRY_EXISTS), data 0 adding new entry "CN=oracle,ou=<ORGANIZATION_UNIT>,dc=<REALM>"

However it is confirmed that the Oracle OS password and Cloudera admin passwords have been verified to meet all Active Directory password restrictions.
