Why some work with CNAMEs+SPN and some not that i dont know.
But you can just add whats needed, as long the CNAME resolves that should also work.
I dont use smblcient at all here so thats one i didnt know.
So thanks on that one. :-)
And small tip for people that dont use DNS at all.
You can add cifs/ip_of_host at Realm also, if you use //ip_of_host/share
But it less flexible.
