That's what I've been using. The W2K KDC doesn't seem to issue a
ticket for anything other than the NETBIOS name.

Here my Samba server is in the domain as name j1. The fqdn is
j1.mixed, realm MIXED.

Here are the kinit results :

kinit j1 at MIXED
Password for j1 at MIXED:

kinit j1\$@MIXED
Password for j1$@MIXED:

kinit j1.mixed at MIXED
kinit(v5): Client not found in Kerberos database while getting initial credentials

The W2K KDC does not issue tickets for fqdn names for machines joined
using the Samba net ads join - only NETBIOS names.
