I'll let that rest on the samba side. Seems like it really depends on
the network segments and which AD server is chosen from the cluster at
which point … the breakage seems to be in our setup, not in smbclient.

The --use-kerberos with the 3 choices is an important debugging tool at
this point.

Alrighty then,
