[Samba] winbindd krb5_get_credentials errors

Hi All,

	can someone elaborate on the cause of my problem mentioned below? Service records exist for DC's only on DNS servers in that domain (ie DNS server in domain X has service records only for all DC's in domain X and so on for each domain), should normal DNS forwarding not allow a client in one domain to read the service record data from another? Normal host records for all domains in the forest are resolveable via DNS forwarding. Otherwise I'll need to have service records for all our DC's in all 6 domains in every DNS server in the forest which is not practical!?!

		thanks in advance, Andy.

KDC's must either be able to be found in DNS (using the SRV records etc)
or be in /etc/krb5.conf.
