I have tried several times but getting  "Cannot contact any KDC for requested realm while getting initial credentials" any body in this group can help me in configuring the Kerberos I would be thankful to him for the same. any document for the same would be great help for me

Just check you have this in your krb5.conf :

	your.subdomain.tld = REALM
	.your.subdomain.tld = REALM

or that your DNS are configured with both TXT fields for "kerberos" and 
SRV fields for _kerberos in your domain.

Your should take a look at "Configuring DNS" chapter in officiel MIt 
Kerberos documentation.

Best regards.
