What do you mean by "I need to be using?' Where?  Have I misconfigured 
something wrong on the Linux side or on the Windows side, and if so, 
what? On the Linux side, it looks like kerberos is working.   At the 
Microsoft support site:


... there are instructions for how to verify that kerberos is working 
on Linux.

1.  Type in command prompt:  kinit some_active_directory_user.
When I do that, I get prompted for a password, and my password seems to 
be accepted.  I get a return command prompt. I'm assuming this means 
"it works".

2.  type:  klist
I get back info about what is in the "ticket cache".  I see there is a 
ticket for "andyl" and information about when it is valid and when it 
expires.  I assume this means it works.

So does this mean Windows 7 is configured wrong?  Thanks again for your
