Sharing the replay caches via a shared filesystem global to the cluster
still applies.

I realize that setting up such a thing may not always be easy, but
kerberized cluster services are a very good reason to do it and it can

anyone asking for reverse lookup canonicalization of host-based princ
names try it.
