Post-installation rlogin error

I just finished installing krb5-1.2.6 on a Solaris 5.8 machine.  Everything
in the installation and database creation seemed to go fine...  However, I
get this error when I try to rlogin into the machine.

'citest' is the KDC and my kerberos client in this case.
'bhoward' is a valid user on the machine and has a principal in the
Principal host/ has also been added to the KDC.
All of the kerberos v5 related services are listed in /etc/services and
tcpwrapped in /etc/inetd.conf

citest# /usr/local/bin/kinit bhoward
Password for bhoward at TEST.ACNS.FSU.EDU:
citest# /usr/local/bin/rlogin -x -l bhoward
error getting credentials: Server not found in Kerberos database
Trying krb4 rlogin...
krb_sendauth failed: You have no tickets cached
There are no errors listed in /var/log/tcpd
    Sep 27 09:30:55 citest klogind[13537]: [ID 927837] connect
from citest

But this error is found in the /var/log/krb5kdc.log
Sep 27 10:11:42 citest krb5kdc[22017](info): TGS_REQ (1 etypes {1}) UNKNOWN_SERVER: authtime 1033135885,
bhoward at TEST.ACNS.FSU.EDU for host/citest at TEST.ACNS.FSU.EDU, Server not
found in Kerberos database

Does anyone have an idea of what I am doing wrong?

Thanks in advance,
