Is this behaviour expected in smbclient:
I have a kerberized Samba server and a share that works as expected on desktop clients, but when I use smbclient with a valid ticket with the -k flag I get a KDC lookup failure
kev at client:/home/testuser$ smbclient -k -L //fileserver
gss_init_sec_context failed with [ Miscellaneous failure (see text): unable to reach any KDC in realm LAN]
SPNEGO(gse_krb5) creating NEG_TOKEN_INIT failed: NT_STATUS_INTERNAL_ERROR
session setup failed: NT_STATUS_INTERNAL_ERROR
I've noticed that if I configure the KDC server in the [realm] section of my /etc/krb5.conf everything works fine.
Does smbclient not use the DNS for KDC lookup?
I am using version Version 4.3.11-Ubuntu on Ubuntu 16.04.1
