Thanks for the question. I will create a case for this shortly and an engineer will get in touch with you to begin working this issue.

Subject: How is a krb5 request to cifs/my.realm handled?

A number of our users are having trouble with group policy in Samba4,
and it seems that their clients (WinXP, Vista) look for their group
policy information in //my.realm/sysvol

This name resolves in DNS, but we don't currently have a mapping for it
in our KDC, because I don't know, if I were to create a mixed
Microsoft/Samba4 domain what key this would resolve to.

Given that it must be shared between all domain controllers, is this
somehow mapped to krbtgt/my.realm?  Is DNS/my.realm also handled this

(In the meantime it would of course be trivial to add such a mapping,
but I want to solve this properly)
