Don't worry that you can't ping the GUID entry, even if it resolves via
'host' to a valid host/ip. I saw the same here. Any one has an idea why?

The second line is something that could cause problems. The IP of
'hoorn.solid-optics.local' isn't in your network. It's

If your /etc/nsswitch.conf says
   hosts:      files dns...
then hoorn uses the IP from the /etc/hosts entry when using the
hostname. And if your Samba (or other services) isn't listening on that
interface/IP, then this could lead to connection problems.

Set this to hoorns real IP or remove that line. Your DNS should answer
that also.

* Can you show your /etc/krb4.conf from hoorn?

* Can you 'kinit' (use uppercase for your realm)
  # kinit administrator at SAMDOM.EXAMPLE.COM
