Possiblility of getting locked out of web interface?

L0 Member

Currently, I'm using a local administrator account on the firewall (no Panorama), but I want to configure authentication between it and active directory. I went through Palo's guide for setting up Kerberos (I read that this is preferred over LDAP due to its increased security, but please chime in if you disagree), but I'm worried about the chance that I misconfigured something. If this is the case and I can't use the network credentials, would I be able to log back in using the local administrator account or would I be locked out? I wanted to check before I hit the commit button!

The local admin account should always work regardless of other authentication methods.
