I really didn't get what you meant by " ....the machine where you are
installing JBoss Negotiate is *not* joined to an Active Directory
domain[*],..... ", As far as I know any machine or user in a
particular domain will be the part of active directory.  Ya I can
separate JBOSS machine from the AD (KDC), ie I will create new machine
in same domain and install JBOSS and test, hope this helps !
I actually didnt got what you meant by word "joined". I am
misunderstanding something..
