Perhaps you want the DnsSrv.patch:


It uses JNDI to lookup domain controllers so that you don't need WINS.

I don't know if it still applies cleanly or if it is compatible with
preauth though.

All I can tell you is that you must make preauth work. We really should
change the wording in the documentation. Currently it says 'if a username
and password are specified then preauthentication will be used' as if it
was something optional. It's not optional.
