Hello all,

I rediscover that Windows client are time to times looking for cifs/real 
SPN (ie. cifs/smb4.tst or cifs/SMB4.TST). One quick way to avoid this 
problem is to add this SPN to the list of SPN of the DC.

That's an easy trick and maybe it can be done for the moment until we 
have something a bit more efficient ?

The absence of this SPN cause windows to switch to NTLM so still the 
access is possible.
