At first it asks for the account and password of a user with sufficient
privileges. The user has to be a member of System:Adminstrators.

"realmadmin" is such an account, and the installation script tells you

It is Coda business, Kerberos is out of question for management of Coda users.
Kerberos is used indirectly for authentication / issuing tokens only.
