For the client side it's *only* about enterprise principal names.
We parse the enterprise principal and replace the 'realm' variable
which is used to lookup in the routing table.

Also note that the routing table contains information about the local
domain/forest and has LSA_TRUST_ATTRIBUTE_WITHIN_FOREST set.

Implementing intra forest routing is a task for another day
and there're a lot more things to be done in order to support
multi domain forests.

We just need one central place to hook it in, because we only need it
once per request, samba_kdc_lookup_client() is called also via

I also think these are already complex enough and should only
care about the local database. The "guard" that checks if the
request is for us can be an independent task that comes first.

I'll try to add it to the rpc.lsa test

I'll have a look.

I'll have a look.

I don't think asserting the exact output is critical.
For the namespace commands we add new values and delete them later,
so we can be pretty sure the commands really add them.

If you had reminded me about the python blackbox testing before,
I would have used them.

That applies to all kind of tests which try to cover a lot of commands.

The blackbox tests for samba-tool domain * use it in every 2nd command

--local-dc-username ${TRUST_CREDS}"

Yes, we first need to fix all layers to code with it on the client side
(the kinit code path), but that's a generic problem not related to
(forest) trusts.
