gss_import_name() fails on HPUX .. need help

I was able to setup my client server programs successfully when
KDC/client/server were on same host (linux).
However, when I am trying to keep KDC on linux, and client/server on HP..
its failing in gss_import_name on the
client side with error or GSS_S_CALL_INACCESSIBLE_READ.

I tried to google this, but most of the links were indicating the patch
could be an issue.. but apparently that seems to
be okay.
Do I need to install something special on HP-UX. I can see that patches
look good..

$ swlist -lproduct | grep -i gss
  GSS-API               B.11.11        GSS-API Version 1.0
  PHSS_29487            1.0            GSS-API Version 1.0 Cumulative patch

    name_buffer.length = strlen("ol_vardhan_al/");
    name_buffer.value = server_name;
    maj_stat = gss_import_name(&min_stat, &name_buffer, mech_type,

On KDC, I can see that ol_vardhan_al/ entry is there
(via list_principals)

Any idea.. what I am missing?
