It helps a lot if you quote actual error messages, instead of paraphrasing 
them.  Similarly, it's going to be a lot easier to track down the problem 
if you send your real krb5.conf, instead of trying to obfuscate the names. 
Perhaps you could also tell us the name of the machine you're trying this
