The hostname is certainly in the DNS for forward and reverse lookup.
(It's avl.mcc.ac.uk at 188.8.131.52.) The krb5.conf does have
in the realms section 'kdc = avl.mcc.ac.uk'; does it need a
kpasswdd entry as well?
I'd also be interested in two other questions not included in
the documentation, as far as I can see. What do I need to get
slave servers working; there is a little bit in the kerberos-4
documentation, but almost nothing in heimdal. Can I presume
the operation is fairly similar? Second, I have compiled with
the two 'experimental' options to enable-kaserver and
enable-kaserver-db. Do these work? There isn't anything about
them except the options on the command line, and it would be
extremely useful if they worked.
I might even be moved to write a little documentation if I
get it all working...
