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

Andrew Bartlett

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.
