Well, when I read this last line, I assumed that you've just run into the
w2k3 doesn't deal with non-rc4-hmac kerberos (that would be pre-1.3 MIT
kerberos), but it is strange that you can map via IP address...

There are several things to try here:
-upgrade kerberos to post 1.3
-try fixing windows, which has multiple options.  See

But the fact that it works via IP address puzzles me...
