We were unable to get Solaris 2.9 clients to authenticate with our MIT kerberos 
server.  We ended up installing MIT kerberos on the clients and uninstalling the
Solaris kerberos packages. I'm not sure if this is normal or if other people    
have similar experiences.  Our environment is extremely heterogeneous so we     
normally ignore vendors kerberos implementations and use MIT instead. To note,  
our kdc was running NetBSD 1.5 with krb 1.2.2.  Solaris 2.9 clients use 1.2.5.
