DsWriteAccountSpn allows you to de-couple the way the client connects from
the account the server is running under
it basically maps a service principal name to the server account such that
in InitializeSecurityContext the client can specify the SPN as the target
without knowing the account under which the server is running. Details are
on MSDN online.
Which brings me to another problem.
When running the server under any domain account other than
localsystem(e.gjoshua) InitializeSecurityContext fails. A look at the
Samba log shows
Kerberos: Principal may not act as server -- joshua at YOUR.REALM
Runnning the server under the localsystem account works since it uses the
machine account and one can use DOMAIN\machinename$ as the target in
