Luke, from my admittedly lesser knowledge of the kerberos protocol, i
thought a realm was a dns domain name.

would you be happy to explain further "sets the canonicalize flag" ? - is it
some sort of a flag to request from the client to the directory server to
query the directory and map the netbios name to its dns equivalent.
